Two stories from ISACS 12: solar-fuel devices and catalyst identification

 

The April issue of our sister journal Energy & Environmental Science opens with an editorial on the ISACS 12 conference held in Cambridge last September.  Nathan Lewis, Chair of the EES editorial board, and co-authors report on highlights of the symposium and discuss two of the main topics covered at the meeting: solar-fuel generators and identifying catalysts.

Read the full EES editorial here:

Chemical Science chemical biology symposium – the highlights

On 6th November 2013, the Department of Chemistry at the University of Warwick hosted a Chemical-Science sponsored symposium on Chemical Biology. The symposium was convened to celebrate several prizes and awards from the RSC Chemistry Biology Interface Division. There were over 130 attendees from industry and many different UK Universities, including a healthy number of local attendees from Warwick.

The first talk of the day was from Prof. Richard Silverman, winner of the RSC Centenary Prize medal, who got things off to a great start and some excellent discussion/questions from the audience. Prof Thomas Carell (Chemical Science invited speaker) and Prof Gregory Challis (from the home team) completed an excellent first session. After a quick break, we had talks from Prof Benjamin Davis (President of RSC Chemistry Biology Interface Division and Chemical Science Associate Editor) and last but not least, Prof Rein Ulijn gave his Norman Heatley Award lecture.

It is also important to thank the Warwick Centre for Analytical Science for sponsoring lunch and the student helpers who helped make this a great event. It goes without saying that the speakers enjoyed a well-earned dinner in the evening to celebrate the awards!

Best of ISACS12 Challenges in Chemical Renewable Energy: See our photos on Facebook!

Suffering from post-ISACS12 withdrawal symptoms? Or did you miss it and want to see how it went? Have a look at our ISACS12 photos taken last 3-6 September, including those at the BBC World Service recording of The Forum with Daniel Nocera, Clare Grey, Carlos Henrique de Brito Cruz and Jim Watson, hosted by Quentin Cooper. We took some behind-the-scenes shots at the welcome reception and poster sessions, and you can meet the hardworking Royal Society of Chemistry Events team, as well.

View, share, and like this album now on our Chemical Science Facebook page! We’d love to hear from you– comments and tags welcome.  And make sure to Like our Facebook page, too!

BBC World Service Recording at ISACS12

Want to know what Daniel Nocera thinks about wirelessly beaming energy from space? Over the coming weekend, the BBC World Service will be broadcasting an episode of The Forum, which was recorded at the RSC’s ISACS12 conference last week entitled “Challenges in Chemical Renewable Energy”.

Quentin Cooper hosts the programme in which Daniel Nocera of Harvard University, Clare Grey of the University of Cambridge, Carlos Henrique de Brito Cruz of the State University of Campinas and Jim Watson of the UK Energy Research Council discuss the work in their areas of expertise and future challenges for renewable energy as a whole.

The programme will be broadcast at 23.06 GMT on Saturday 14th September, 10.06 GMT on Sunday 15th September and 2.06 GMT on Monday 16th September. Find out when this is in your local time at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/programmeguide/.

It will also be available to listen on the iPlayer shortly after the broadcasts have finished and you will be able to hear it at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01g94yj.

Inaugural Chemical Science Lectureship announced

We are delighted to announce the winner of the inaugural Chemical Science Lectureship – Professor Kevan Shokat.

The 2013 Chemical Science Lectureship was awarded in the area of chemical biology and the award lecture was given at Challenges in Chemical Biology (ISACS11) in Boston, USA, in July. Professor Shokat was presented with his award by Chemical Science Associate Editor, Professor Tom Muir.

Professor Shokat obtained his Ph.D. at UC Berkeley and following appointments at Stanford University and Princeton University, in 1999 he moved to UC San Francisco to his current appointment as Associate Professor of Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology.

The Shokat Lab’s research is focused on using the tools of synthetic organic chemistry, structural biology, genetics, and mathematical modelling to gain insight into how signalling networks transmit information in normal and disease settings. Their guiding principle is to use chemistry to answer questions that cannot be addressed by the use of biochemistry or genetics— they seek to provide tools, which fill in the gaps left behind by more traditional approaches.

Award Details
The lectureship, which will be awarded annually, will recognize sustained excellence in research by a mid-career scientist within the chemical sciences. The recipient of the Lectureship is selected and endorsed by the Chemical Science Editorial Board.

The recipient will be invited to present a plenary lecture at a relevant International Symposia on Advancing the Chemical Sciences (ISACS); they will also receive a certificate, $2000 and will be invited to contribute to Chemical Science.

The 2014 Chemical Science Lectureship winner will give a plenary lecture at one of the 2014 ISACS meetings:

  • ISACS 13: Challenges in Inorganic Chemistry and Materials Chemistry – July 2014, Dublin, Ireland
  • ISACS 14: Challenges in Organic Chemistry (Synthesis) – August 2014, Shanghai, China
  • ISACS 15: Challenges in Nanoscience – August 2014, San Diego, USA

More information about these conferences will appear on the ISACS website soon.
