2016 BMCS Travel Prize:
The RSC Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 BMCS Travel Prize, who are: Aimee Clarke (University of York); Yong Xu (King’s College, London); James Murray (Imperial College, London); Mareike Wiedmann (University of Cambridge); Syed Ahmed (University of Manchester); Sarah Chambers (University of York). The BMCS introduced the Travel Prize programme in 2014 to help support, encourage and develop the training of next-generation research leaders. The winners receive funding of up to £1500 to support their attendance at, and travel to, high impact international conferences relevant to their projects. The chairman of the BMCS judging panel, Dr. Andrew Williams, commented "All the members of the judging panel were deeply impressed by the very high quality, the diversity of research areas represented and again, the large number of applications for this third running of the Travel Prize Programme. I would like to pass on my sincere congratulations and thanks to all of the applicants. The level of competition and the difficulty the judges found in agreeing on the eventual winners speaks very highly to the quality of research in the chemical sciences currently being conducted in the UK".
CHOOSE THE RIGHT CHANNEL: 5th RSC / SCI symposium on Ion Channels as Therapeutic Targets - 14th-15th March 2016 AT THE Wellcome Trust Conference Centre, Cambridge, UK
Synopsis: The objective of the symposium is to showcase the most recent advances in ion channel science and to promote scientific interaction between scientists with a shared interest in the field of ion channel drug discovery
GO WITH THE FLOW!! RSC / SCI symposium on Continuous Flow Technology III - 14th-16th March 2016 AT Robinson College, Cambridge, UK
Synopsis: The meeting is directed at individuals with a curiosity into what Flow is and how it may benefit them or their organisations (covering aspects from microfluidics to production scale manufacture) and those people already involved in the area (by highlighting the latest developments and cutting edge research to further stimulate activity).
SYNTHESIS IN THE AGRISCIENCES - 14th April 2016 AT BURLINGTON HOUSE< PICCADILLY, London
Synopsis: The objective of the meeting is to promote scientific interactions between researchers in the field and to showcase the key role that synthesis plays in the development of new agrochemicals. New crop protection products are important tools for overcoming the huge challenges that modern agriculture faces – to increase food production and yield in a cost effective and sustainable manner with limited farmland and water supplies and loss of existing solutions through development of resistance or regulatory pressures.
Closing date for poster submission is 19th February
