Dr Clare Mahon has been awarded a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship worth £1.7 M.

Congratulations to Dr Clare Mahon on her UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship award worth £1.7 M, entitled “PolyForm: a unified approach to biodegradable polymers for fabric care formulations.”  Working in partnership with Procter and Gamble, the project aims to transform both the performance and environmental footprint of an essential human activity – the cleaning of textiles and hard surfaces. The PolyForm team will develop the fundamental capabilities for sustainable, high-performance cleaning by developing new tools, models and synthetic routes to generate novel sustainably-sourced polymers for formulation within consumer goods products.
