For the 24th consecutive year the Fine Chemicals Group are pleased to announce the 24th Scotland Postgraduate Symposium on Novel Organic Chemistry.
This event invites organic chemistry students in the final year of their doctoral studies at UK universities (in synthesis, mechanistic studies, methodology, medicinal chemistry or analysis) to submit applications to present their work.
Winning speakers in this symposium will receive a cash prize and runners up will also recieve prizes.
Students interested in presenting their work, or anyone who would like further information about these events, are encouraged to speak to their supervisor or contact Prof Ian Gilbert.
