Recognition of a Research Project usually comes long after the work and ideas on which it is based. Clare Hall has made an important contribution to the research careers of many of its members and we are happy to have played a part in some truly inspirational projects.
Many former Clare Hall Visiting Fellows have been awarded Nobel Prizes:
Ivor Giaever was awarded a Nobel Prize for Physics in 1973
