Join us to celebrate a new IET engineering research prize of £300,000 – awarded for the first time!

The IET A F Harvey Engineering Research prize is awarded annually, honouring an exceptional individual researcher for their outstanding achievements and promising future research. This has been made possible by the generous legacy of IET member Dr Arthur Frank Harvey.

Professor Ed Boyden
Professor Ed Boyden has been awarded the prize for his pioneering research contributions to the field of optogenetics. The research he will undertake with the prize money is focused on exploiting his advances in optogenetics to detect and suppress epileptic seizures.
