Prices start from £0.00


This meeting is of interest to industrial chemists to discover what their contemporaries are working on in other companies and other areas of research, but also for academic chemists who want to find out the different challenges and focus that working in an industrial setting offers. It also presents a superb opportunity for younger chemists to showcase their industrial research to an external audience. Prizes will be awarded for the best talk and runners-up. In addition, a lecture from a leading industrial chemist will conclude the proceedings.

Selected Speakers
  • Michael Bodnarchuk, AstraZeneca

  • Matthew Burns, AstraZeneca
  • James Dodd, Vertex Pharmaceuticals
  • Charlene Fallan, AstraZeneca
  • Cristofer Pezzetta, Dr Reddy’s Laboratories
  • Matthieu Tissot, UCB
  • Laura Trump, UCB
  • Jessie Tucker, GlaxoSmithKline   



This meeting is aimed at chemists working in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology or agrochemical sector and would provide them with a unique opportunity to discover what their contemporaries do in other branches of the industry. The meeting would also appeal to graduates and post-graduates with a background in organic chemistry.

Call for Papers

Early-career scientists are sought to give 25 minute talks at the event. As for previous meetings, experimentalists rather than managers are encouraged to speak. The age limit is 35 and there are no restrictions based on education (both graduates and postgraduates welcome). Please send an abstract (200 words max) with the subject line “26th Young Chemist in Industry - abstract submission”, along with a title, a scheme or figure if applicable and a very brief career history to conferences@soci.org by Friday 21 June 2019. Prizes will be awarded for the best talk and runners-up.
