We were so immensely proud of Kim last night (16th of March 2023) when she won the Bionow Rising Star of the Year Award for 2022. So richly deserved in recognition of her research that has resulted in the commercial launch of an innovative approach to early seizure detection. Michael Morton, Richard Knight, Julie Knight, Magali-Anne Maizieres, Sean Hammond and Michelle Blissett were all there to help Kim celebrate at the Concorde Conference Centre at Manchester Airport. It was a really lovely evening.
