SCI’s Young Chemists’ Panel
The University of Manchester, UK
This event is aimed at undergraduate students currently undertaking industrial research placements. Those working in organic, biological, supramolecular, physical organic or medicinal chemistry and related fields are encouraged to apply. The event presents an excellent opportunity for chemistry industrial placement students to present their work to a national audience, and to learn about what their peers in other companies are working on.
This year’s event will be a full day symposium including talks and a poster session. A selection of submissions will be invited to give a 10-minute presentation of their work at the symposium. Prizes will be awarded for the best talks and posters. There will also be a talk from a keynote speaker working in industry.
This event is aimed at undergraduate chemistry students, either currently undertaking a placement or planning to in future,and will also be of interest to industrial chemists.
For further information and prices, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any student currently on placement in the UK, or those on placement abroad who attend a UK university are invited to submit an abstract.
Please download an abstract template here and send an abstract (150 words max) with the subject line “National undergraduate industrial placement showcase 2023 - abstract submission”, along with a title and a scheme or figure to email@example.com. Students must have approval from their industrial supervisor before submitting an abstract. The closing date for abstracts is Friday 14 April.
Please confirm in your application if you would like to be considered for an oral presentation. A selection of abstracts will be picked to present a talk at the showcase. Students will be notified whether they have been selected for a talk or poster by Friday 28 April.
During the event, there will be the opportunity to have a 1:1 session with one of the SCI mentors. These will be 10-15 minutes long, informal conversations, thought to promote the wider SCI’s Mentoring programme (https://www.soci.org/careers-support/mentoring-programme), where the mentee will have the chance to ask the mentor questions about career developments etc.These sessions are free to attend but there will be limited availability. If you would like to sign up for it, please download and add your question(s) to the template here and send it with the subject line “National undergraduate industrial placement showcase 2023 - Mentoring” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Luca Carlino obtained his Doctoral degree in Medicinal Chemistry in 2014 under the supervision of Professor Wolfgang Sippl at the University of Halle/Saale, Germany. Luca’s studies were mainly focused on the discovery, using computational techniques, of novel inhibitors of epigenetic targets. In 2015 he moved to the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy, where he earned a postdoctoral position for the identification of anticancer drugs based on kinase inhibitors with innovative mechanisms of action. One year later he moved to Charles River Laboratory, UK, where he worked as computational chemist providing CADD support and solutions for several projects commissioned by pharmaceutical companies, universities and no-profit research organisation. In June 2020, Luca joined AstraZeneca, UK, where he is currently working as senior scientist in the oncology early discovery department.
The programme will be confirmed in due course.
