The Polymer Physics Group Founders' Prize was instigated to commemorate the work of Professor Andrew Keller. It is awarded biennially to a scientist who has made an outstanding contribution to Polymer Physics in the UK or Ireland.
The recipient need not be British or even currently working in the UK or Ireland, provided their research has had a significant UK or Irish component.

In 2013 the Founders Prize will be awarded to Professor Donal Bradley (Imperial College London) at the 2013 Biennial Meeting of the Polymer Physics Group in Sheffield.
