Professor Roberto Maiolino awarded a Royal Society Research Professorship

The Royal Society has announced that Professor Roberto Maiolino has been awarded a  Royal Society Research Professorship. The Royal Society citation states that "Professor Roberto Maiolino will use two new cutting- edge facilities to measure the chemical enrichment of galaxies out to the earliest epochs of galaxy formation with unprecedented accuracy and datasets of distant galaxies. This will enable him to discriminate between different scenarios of galaxy formation and ultimately trace chemical enrichment all the way back to the very first galaxies."\
