Congratulations to the Poster Prize winner at the University of California Symposium for the Chemical Sciences.
The winner is Bryn Taylor of UC San Diego who is currently working as a graduate student in the group of Rob Knight and co-advised by Rommie Amaro. Her research encompasses computational chemistry and biophysics, focusing on microbial proteomes and the function of the microbiome.
The meeting took place for the first time and was supported by eight UC departments (UC Davis, UCLA, UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara). All areas of chemistry, including biological, organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry were represented and the symposium provided an excellent opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to not only present their work in a multidisciplinary environment, but also take part in different workshops to further their career and establish connections with professionals from industry, government and alternative science jobs.
The prize was presented by the RSC Editorial Development Manager, North America, Dr Jennifer Griffiths.
