On behalf of the ChemComm Editorial Board, I am delighted to announce that Dr Scott Dalgarno (Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, UK) has won the inaugural ChemComm Emerging Investigator Lectureship.
This annual award recognises an emerging scientist in the early stages of their independent academic career. The Editorial Board commended Dr Dalgarno’s contributions to the field of supramolecular chemistry, in particular the assembly and properties of calixarenes.
Dr Dalgarno will present his award lecture, entitled ‘Metal-Organic Calixarene Assemblies’, at the following locations:
- Challenges in Organic Materials & Supramolecular Chemistry (ISACS6), Beijing, China, 2nd-5th September 2011
- Chemical Science Symposium, Nanjing, China, 6th September 2011
- Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, 8th September 2011
For more details about these lectures, please contact ChemComm Editor, Robert Eagling.
