Congratulations to our ChemComm ‘lightning talk’ prize winner at the University of California Symposium for the Chemical Sciences.
The meeting was supported by eight UC departments (UC Davis, UCLA, UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara) representing all areas of chemistry including biological, organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry. The symposium which was held for the first time 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.
We would like to congratulate the winner of the best ‘lightning talk’, a short representation of the speaker’s research of about 5 min. The prize was given to Liban Saleh who is currenlty working as a Post-Doctoral Associate in the group of Alexander Spokoyny (UCLA). His research focuses on inorganic and organomimetic cluster chemistry towards functional materials.
