Chemistry in Focus (Sofia Bariami, Iain Prentice, Kyle Acheson, Johanna Rademacher, Angie Mat’usová, and Dr. Antonia Mey) are delighted to share their first video showcasing some of the exciting work being done by PhD students in the School of Chemistry.
Chemistry in Focus is a student-led project, based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh and funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The project aims to popularise significant, milestone publications from PhD students within the School, and to give PhD students a platform to promote themselves and share their ground-breaking research with the general public.
Congratulations to Yael Ben-Tal from the Lloyd-Jones group for making it through the College heat of the 3 Minute Thesis competition. Yael's talk was entitled "Shining Light on Chemical Reactions".
She will now go on to represent the College at the University finals on the 25th of June.
Congratulations to Dr Jean O'Donoghue who has won this year's EUSA Outstanding Support Staff Award. Jean is a project manager for the OPTIMA Centre for Doctoral Training and also our Equality and Diversity Coordinator.
The award recognises those staff who help studies run smoothly by doing some of the following:
Congratulations to Gary Tang from the Campopiano group on publishing his first paper in none other than the high-impact Journal of Dental Reesearch.
The paper is titled "Porphyromonas gingivalis Sphingolipid Synthesis Limits the Host Inflammatory Response."
Students from the School of Chemistry had a fantastic opportunity recently to enhance their employability skills and gain insights from staff from multi-national company Reckitt Benckiser. The workshop is part of the ‘Chemistry Concept to Consumer’ series of careers workshops run by Deborah Fowlis and Dr Phil Bailey.
Congratulations to Yael Ben-Tal and Harvey Dale, both from the Lloyd-Jones group, who have been awarded 2020 Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) International Travel Prizes! This is the second year in a row that our students have been awarded this prize.
