Participating in this Six Nations event will be:

  • Ireland: Prof Declan Gilheany - Asymmetric Grignard synthesis of tertiary alcohols
  • England: Prof Chris Willis - Natural products: The inspiration for new targets of biological interest
  • Wales: Dr Mike Ingleson - Cationic main group Lewis acids as synthetic reagents and catalysts
  • Italy: Prof Cesare Gennari - Tumor targeting via integrin ligands: synthesis and biological evaluation of RGD peptidomimetic-paclitaxel conjugates
  • Scotland: Prof Joe Harrity - New strategies for the synthesis of boronic acid derivatives
  • France: Prof Sam Zard - Radicals in action. Some new perspectives for organic synthesis and for medicinal chemistry

The event will bring together participants from academia, the public and private sectors. Aside from the presentations, there will be ample opportunities for networking during the lunch and refreshment breaks and at an after-event wine reception.

An exhibition will complement the event, allowing participants to talk to relevant company representatives.
