Hill family celebrate first George Moore Prizes in Pharmacy

Two new prizes were awarded by Dr and Mrs Hill at the Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology annual prize-giving ceremony this year.

Both prizes are to be awarded annually at the Pharmacy prize-giving ceremony honouring Mrs Sheila Hill’s father, Dr George Moore, the founding Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bath.

The first George Moore Prize is for the best student in Infection and Immunity - reflecting Dr Moore’s own research and teaching interests - the second is for the best student in the M.Pharm degree.

Glen Cooper, winner of the Infection and Immunity prize, said: “It is fantastic to have won this prize.  I am delighted to be the first recipient of a prize in memory of the first Vice-Chancellor, Dr George Moore, who was a member of staff in this School of Pharmacy.  I am grateful to his family for their generosity.”

Cheok Chang, winner of five prizes including the George Moore Prize for the best student, said: “I am stunned that I have won these five top prizes. It is very generous of the sponsors and I am really looking forward to my career in pharmacy having had such a great start with my education at the world-famous University of Bath.”

The Director of Teaching in Pharmacy & Pharmacology, Dr Philip Rogers, said: “These are special prizes, awarded for the first time in memory of Dr George Moore, the University’s first Vice-Chancellor. Dr Moore taught in the Bath and South West School of Pharmacy at Bristol before transferring with the founding of the University of Bath. 

“We are delighted the family have honoured the first Vice-Chancellor in this way and we all congratulate the two first winners of these generous prizes.”
