Professor Rui L. Reis has been chosen as the 2017 recipient of the IET Harvey Engineering Research Prize for his outstanding contributions to research in the field of Medical Engineering, specifically for contributions to bioengineering, biomedical engineering, tissue engineering and biomaterials.


Professor Reis will present a prize lecture on 20 March 2018 to talk about his research and how the prize funding will be used to further his research.


The IET Harvey Prize Committee identifies potential candidates from around the world. The award is given for the furtherance of scientific research in the fields of medical, microwave, laser or radar engineering, rotating over a three-year cycle. The Committee draws up a shortlist of candidates from whom additional information is requested for further detailed consideration.


The IET’s Harvey Research Prize, worth £350,000, is named after Dr A F Harvey who bequeathed a generous sum of money to the IET for a trust fund to be set up in his name - which is for the furtherance of scientific research into the fields of medical, microwave, laser or radar engineering.

Professor Reis is a Professor of Tissue Engineering, Regenerative Medicine, Biomaterials and Stem Cells at the  Department of Polymer Engineering and is the seventh successor of the IET Harvey Prize.
