EFMC Roche Studentships 2017

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 fifth EFMC-Roche studentships have been announced by Koen Augustyns (EFMC) and Rainer Martin (F. Hoffmann-La Roche) at the 7th EFMC International Symposium on Advances in Synthetic and Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ASMC’17),

The recipients were Eleen Laul (University of Edinburgh, UK) and Xinlan Aloise Cook (University of York, UK). We would like to congratulate both of them for their fantastic achievement.

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