Dr Joyce Jepkorir Kiplimo who won the Royal Society of Chemistry International Exchanges Award made her first visit to the University of Surrey in June, 2019. The award is an International Exchange award for overseas travel between collaborators in the UK and Kenya (Dr Joyce Jepkorir Kiplimo of the University of Kabianga and Professor Dulcie Mulholland of the University of Surrey). The award’s project title "Investigating the phytochemical potential of the Kenyan Mau Forest” started in November 2018 will run for two years and will see both the collaborators travel to UK and Kenya.  The project entails extraction, isolation of active compounds from medicinal plants in the Kenyan Mau Forest complex. The collection and extraction will be done in the University of Kabianga while isolation and identification of compounds is done in the University of Surrey.
