Jim Feast's Research Group

[Dr William James Feast took up a lectureship in organic chemistry at Durham in October 1965, becoming successively senior lecturer (1975) and professor (1987). From 1989-1995 he was Courtaulds professor of polymer chemistry. In 1989, he was appointed on October 1 to the Durham directorship of the Leeds-Bradford-Durham interdisciplinary research centre in polymer science and technology established by the UK Government's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The Council's funding ended eleven years later. Jim Feast's election to Fellowship of the Royal Society (London) dates from March 1996. For two years from January 1998 he led activity in Durham University's Science Faculty that was financed by the European Union regional development fund's grant to support small and medium science-based enterprises in northeast England. In retirement (from 2003), he was appointed research professor for three years from October 2003 and, while bringing his ongoing laboratory research to conclusion, led the Science Faculty's activity in nanotechnology financed by the Government's research fund for the region. He became president of the Royal Society of Chemistry for two years from July 2006 and in January 2007 was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE). He lives in Durham.]

The 29 weekend reuniters in 2003 (April), gathered by Len Anderson [see 1966 above], had been his contemporaries for some or all of his student days at Durham (1963-9). Their revisit drew attention to the completion, in September that year, of Jim Feast's highly successful work as a lecturer and research-group leader.
