EFMC Roche Studentships 2016

One of the goals of the EFMC is to enhance interactions at the industry/academia interface and to promote improved cooperation between the pharmaceutical industry and academia. EFMC and F. Hoffman-La Roche therefore proposed an opportunity to broaden the awareness to European University based chemistry students of the EFMC activities by rewarding excellence accomplished during a medicinal chemistry internship in industry.

The fourth EFMC-Roche studentships have been announced by Koen Augustyns (EFMC) and Fionn O'Hara (F. HOFFMANN-LA ROCHE) at the XXIV EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ISMC), held in Manchester on August 28 - September 1, 2016.

The recipients were Ana Isabel OLIVEIRA ALMEIDA (University of Aveiro, Portugal) and Niamh JIMENEZ (University of St Andrews, UK). We would like to congratulate Ana Isabela and Niamh for their fantastic achievement.

EFMC would like to thank F. Hoffman-La Roche for their contribution and support.
