Pharmaceutical and Forensic Analysis Graduate Wins International Award

Richard Kelly from Tuam, Co. Galway graduated from LIT with a first class honours degree in Pharmaceutical and Forensic Analysis in 2006. He went on to do an M.Sc. by research in the detection of drugs used in sport which was performed under the supervision of Dr. Jim Healy of the Science Dept., LIT. Having worked in the laboratory of the Irish Greyhound Board, he was recruited as a racing scientist and researcher by the internationally highly regarded Racing Analytical Laboratory in Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates. This laboratory is the official provider of drug testing services to the United Arab Emirates Camel Race Association.

Every two years, the Association of Official Racing Chemists (AORC) recognises the best chemists from around the world in that area of science. Last month, Richard was announced as winner of the 2016 young racing scientist award for his work in the area. The award was presented at a recent AORC dinner attended by leading racing chemists from all over the world.
