26th International Symposium: Synthesis in Organic Chemistry

The 26th International Symposium on Synthesis in Organic Chemistry was held in Cambridge last month, showcasing exciting work in this core area of organic chemistry – synthesis. Chemical Science, alongside Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry, was proud to sponsor the event, which included talks covering a variety of aspects of modern synthesis and provided a forum for emerging methodologies and strategies.

The symposium featured talks from researchers working at the cutting-edge of synthesis in organic chemistry, including Chemical Science Associate Editor Vy Dong, Frances Arnold, Shankar Balasubramanian, Tanja Gulder, Robert Knowles, Daniele Leonori, David Nicewicz, Robert Phipps, Tobias Ritter, Tomislav Rovis, Franziska Schoenebeck, Hiroaki Suga, Edward Tate, F Dean Toste, Matthew Tudge, and William Unsworth.

Chemical Science’s Executive Editor, May Copsey, was proud to present the Poster Prizes for the meeting, sponsored by Chemical Science and Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry. Congratulations to Roman Abrams (University of Bristol) and Claire Flitcroft (The University of Sydney) for winning the judge’s choice poster prizes, and to Tobias Wagener (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster) and Thomas Brouder (University College Cork) for winning the participant’s vote prizes. There was a fantastic array of posters – congratulations to all those who displayed work.

Bioorthogonal & Bioresponsive 2019

Chemical Science recently sponsored Bioorthogonal & Bioresponsive 2019 in Edinburgh, which brought together chemists and biologists interested in the latest advances in bioorthogonal and bioresponsive strategies.

The meeting featured stunning talks from a variety of international experts, including Jason Chin, Ben Davis, Karen Faulds, Sarah Heilshorn, Ludovic Jullien and Vince Rotello.

We finished the first day with a poster session and drinks reception on the top floor of the Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine, with a stunning view across the city. There was a fantastic display of posters, and Chemical Science along with Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry were delighted to sponsor the poster prizes. Congratulations to both of the prize winners!
