On Wednesday 25 January, the British Muslim Awards took place at The Athena in Leicester city centre. Launched in 2013, the awards celebrate the successes, achievements and contribution of Britain's Muslims to British society. This year’s award for Services to Science and Engineering went to Dr Kal Karim, Senior Lecturer in Organic and Computational Chemistry in the University’s Department of Chemistry.

“I was humbled and delighted to have won the award for Services to Science and Engineering at the British Muslim Awards last night” said Kal. “This is the accumulation of many years of hard work but is also a collective effort of Leicester Biotechnology Group and many colleagues who have supported me throughout my career”.

“I am hoping that the award will inspire students particularly those from BME backgrounds that they have dedicated teachers and educators that will help them nurture their enthusiasm and talent to be successful in pursuing a career in science and engineering”.

Congratulations Kal from everyone at the University!
