Below is an extract from what was written in one of the nominations forms which was read out by the Provost.

‘Claire has shown a unique drive and determination in transforming the PDC reps at Hammersmith into a single unit across the different departments on campus. She has put a huge amount of time and effort into organising meetings, writing funding applications and in seeking other funding sources for postdoc networking events and workshops at Hammersmith. She had always been enthusiastic and is never discouraged. She is the driving force behind maintaining the Hammersmith reps network.

Claire Morgan received the Postdoc Development Centre (PDC) Reps award, August 2015


A total of 15 Reps were put forward for consideration for the first PDC Reps award, 5 of which were taken forward as finalists. Each of these individuals has excelled in their role as departmental Reps and there is evidence that there is a real cultural change within their department as a result of their work. In recognition of the extraordinary work that the finalists have done they each received a £50 John Lewis Voucher with the winner receiving £500 toward a conference or workshop of their choice.


Claire Morgan from the Department of Medicine was the overall winner of this award, which was presented by the Provost, Professor James Stirling.
