Runner up prize for School of Chemistry student
Katie Grant with her certificate

Congratulations to Katie Grant, who won the runner up prize representing the School of Chemistry at the @SCIupdate National Undergraduate Research Symposium which took place at Imperial College on the 28th of June. Her talk was titled "“A Mechanistic Study of the gem-Difluorocyclopropanation of Alkenes by TMSCF3“.

Katie tweeted about the event, saying she was "Very proud to receive the runner up prize at the @SCIupdate National Undergraduate Research Symposium representing @EdinburghChem. Hopefully the first of many brilliant conferences!" Katie was awarded a 1st class MChem degree, and is staying with the Lloyd-Jones group to begin her PhD this September. 

The one-day event invites Chemistry students to present their research project. It is in its seventh edition with 10 speakers each year presenting their topics to a wide audience. It is an excellent opportunity for students to meet peers across the UK and discuss research with both academic and industrial representatives.
