About this award
Smartphones, laptops and the TV in your home - they all rely on technology that was made possible by research at the University of Hull. Fifty years ago, Professor George W Gray patented the liquid crystal molecule 5CB that made LCDs and flat screens viable. His work is arguably one of the most significant scientific breakthroughs of the modern era. To celebrate this landmark discovery, the University of Hull has created a commemorative scholarship to encourage more international students to study chemistry and, hopefully, follow in Professor Gray’s footsteps.
