The event was hosted jointly by the Loughborough Doctoral College and Loughborough Students Union. The PGR Awards are there to celebrate the fantastic contribution that the postgraduate research community and those who support them, make to the Loughborough University experience through their research, enterprise and extra-curricular endeavours. 

‌The Contribution to Knowledge Award, (photographed below right), recognises a postgraduate researcher who is excelling academically, is conducting research of the highest calibre and has shown that their research has the ability to significantly extend their research field.

Unfortunately, Omid was not available on the presentation evening to receive the award personally, but happily, his wife was on hand to do the honours.  (Top photograph) Professor Steve Rothberg, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research presented the award.

In response to receiving the award, Omid stated:

“I am pleased with the award and proud to be receiving such a great recognition for my work. I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to my supervisor, Prof Victor Starov, for his academic guidance and enthusiastic encouragement throughout the research. I feel honoured to have had a chance to work with such a great scientist and learn from him.”
