Journal of Materials Chemistry A would like to give a warm welcome to our newest Associate Editor, Li-Zhu Wu who joined us last month. Li-Zhu is currently based at the Technical Insitute of Physics and Chemistry in China. She received her Ph.D. from the Institute of Photographic Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, under the supervision of Professor Chen-Ho Tung in 1995. From 1995−1998, she worked at the Institute of Photographic Chemistry as an associate professor. After a postdoctoral stay (1997−1998) at the University of Hong Kong working with Professor Chi-Ming Che, she returned to the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as a full professor.
Her research interests focus on photochemical conversion, including artificial photosynthesis, visible light catalysis for organic transformation, photoinduced electron transfer, energy transfer and chemical reactions in supramolecular systems. She has published more than 240 peer-reviewed articles, 2 books and 10 book chapters and holds 50 patents. She has been invited to give numerous lectures at international conferences, piquing interest worldwide.
Further information about Liz-Zhu can be found on her institution webpage.
Ryo Nishimura (Ryukoku University) was the Journal of Materials Chemistry A poster prize winner at the Annual Meeting on Photochemistry 2016 which took place on the 6th - 8th September in Tokyo, Japan. Ryo was awarded for his poster titled: Photoinduced biomimetic diarylethene microcrystalline surface, mimicking the surface structures of the termite wing.
The meeting was organised by the Japanese Photochemistry Association. Further information about the meeting can be found on the webpage.
Journal of Materials Chemistry C and our sister journal Materials Horizons would like to congratulate poster prize winners: Mykhailo Tymchenko (University of Texas-Austin, USA) for his paper titled: Circuit-Based Magnetless Floquet Topological Insulator and our Materials Horizons prize winner: Vladislav Popov (Belarusian State University, Belarus), for his paper titled: Advanced Effective Medium Approximation For Subwavelength Multilayers To Overcome Maxwell-Garnet Approach Breakdown.
The prizes were awarded at the 10th International Congress on Advanced Electromagnetic Materials in Microwaves and Optics (Metamaterials’2016) which took place in Crete, Greece from the 17th - 22nd September.
The conference was organised by the METAMORPHOSE VI AISBL and hosted by the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) and provided a unique topical forum to share the latest results of the metamaterials research in Europe and worldwide.

Congratulations to the above Journal of Materials Chemistry B & C poster prize winners who were awarded for their posters at the 8th International Conference on Molecular Electronics which took place last month from the 22nd - 26th August in Paris, France.
The conference was an up-to-date scientific exchange on recent advances in the field of molecular electronics, gathering researchers from all over the world around top-level plenary and keynote speakers. It was also an opportunity for the development of national and international collaborations between academic and private partners at the highest level.

‘Molecular Imaging: From Design to Clinical Practicalities’, University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire
Journal of Materials Chemistry B was proud to sponsor the one-day molecular imaging meeting Molecular Imaging 2016, held at the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire in conjunction with the University of Warwick on Friday 15th July 2016. This meeting brought together researchers with clinical/medical associations and clinicians to present their latest work in the design and application of imaging probes, and also explored the role of the visual arts in medicine. Invited speakers included:
Prof Andrew Whittaker (University of Queensland)
Dr Angus Johnston (Monash University)
Dr Nicola Rogers (Durham University)
Dr Kristofer Thurecht (University of Queensland)
Dr Charles Hutchinson (University of Warwick/University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire)
Prof John Marshall (Queen Mary University/Barts Cancer Institute)
One of the talks, held by Dr Angus Johnston and Dr John McGhee, proved to be real show stopper. Together they presented a narrative entitled ‘Journey to the centre of the cell’ which combined the work of imaging scientists with the visual arts, specifically computer game technology. As part of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Bionano Convergent Science and Technology, a virtual reality (VR) platform has been developed from data compiled from a range of imaging modalities to construct the cell surface, internalisation processes and cell contents. They even brought a VR headset and allowed delegates to take the ‘journey’ throughout the day.
The Journal of Materials Chemistry B poster prize was awarded to Alice Harden, a PhD student at Durham University and the Materials Horizons poster prize was awarded to James Everett, a PDRA from the University of Warwick.
