Shane Kenny was a graduate of Industrial Microbiology at UCD and received a PhD in Microbiology. He was the first employee of Bioplastech, a UCD spin out. He was a driver of many of the technological innovations in the company. Sadly, Shane passed away in July of 2020. He was a huge presence in our lives and is so greatly missed by us all.
Shane and Lars collaborated on two EU projects with Lars as co-ordinator (P4SB and MIX-UP). Shane knew and respected Lars very much and so it is fitting that Lars should deliver the inaugural lecture.
