The university is hosting this year’s Royal Society of Chemistry Bright Spark Symposium. Run by the RSC Analytical Science Network this free event is designed to provide a low-pressure, friendly platform for early career analytical scientists to present their work to like-minded individuals and provide networking opportunities. The day will include a number of talks from our bright sparks as well as a poster session. All aspects of analytical science welcome! Spaces are free but limited.
Students and staff were treated to some fascinating chemistry at the RSC Prizewinners Symposium. With two prizewinners giving talks and receiving their medals. Dr Nicholas Chilton (Manchester) received the Dalton Young Researchers Award for his major contributions to theory and modelling in molecular magnetism.
Professor Mark Wallace (Oxford) received the Norman Heatley Award for his distinguished work in the area of artifical lipid bilayers, creating a new way of studying membrane proteins.
We thank them both for their interesting insights into their work, all present enjoyed the event. We’d also like to thank the Royal Society of Chemistry for their support in this symposium.
Our own staff also provided talks to complement the two areas with Dr Ian Gass discussing his Radical approach to molecular magnetism and Dr Marcus Dymond discussing Lipid protein interactions and phospholipid homeostasis. Both highlighting some of the great research from our own chemistry laboratories.
Today we have an exciting afternoon planned with two Royal Society of Chemistry Prizewinners receiving their medals and giving talks about their work. To add to the event we have two of our own staff giving talks about their closely allied research interests. It is sure to be a fascinating afternoon. Online booking is now closed but there are still some spaces left. Please email Dr Ian Gass to book your space
