Congratulations to Professor Steve Henry of Kode Technology Innovation (DCT) and Kode Biotech, who has been made a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand.
Professor Henry joins 22 other new Fellows who’ve been elected to the Academy of the Royal Society Te Apārangi for their distinction in research and advancement of mātauranga Māori, humanities, technology and science.
Dean of the Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies Professor Guy Littlefair says being made a Fellow shows Professor Henry is a world leader. “The innovative work happening at Kode Technology Innovation is due to Steve’s passion and determination. Congratulations Steve for this well-deserved accolade.”
Kode Technology Innovation researches the application of Kode technology, a range of ‘biological paints’ designed to modify biological and non-biological surfaces. Kode technology has already been applied effectively in a number of biomedical products including diagnostic assays (adding blood antigens onto cells), quality control systems (controlled levels of antigens), teaching/training systems (serology & immunology), and as an extensive range of research tools used for modification of cells, viruses, bacteria, organisms, solutions, aerosols, and surfaces.
Professor Henry says he is honoured to be made a Fellow. “Being made a Fellow of the Royal Society alongside 22 other outstanding researchers and scholars is a wonderful recognition of my work with Kode technology. I’m delighted to be in such esteemed company.”
The new Fellows will be formally inducted at a hybrid event in Wellington on 28 April 2022.
