The RMS was delighted to learn that its Vice President, Professor Grace Burke, has received the 2024 Mishima Award from the American Nuclear Society (ANS).

The award, for “enduring and exceptional contributions to our understanding of irradiation-induced microstructural evolution”, was presented to her during the recent ANS Conference, which took place in Las Vegas from 16 – 19 June.

Grace has made seminal contributions to microscopy and Materials Science throughout her remarkable career, which has included long periods in both industry and academia, in the US and UK.

She served as RMS President from 2019 to 2023, and is the only person to have served as President for both the RMS and MSA (Microscopy Society of America).

The ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
