Poster Prizes awarded at Electron Donor-Acceptor Interactions

Last week I attended the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Electron-Donor Acceptor Interactions in sunny Rhode Island. As per the rules of the GRC, I can’t divulge details of the science discussed but I am sure they won’t mind me saying that it was a fantastic conference – highly recommended!

One of the highlights of the meeting was the poster talks session. Here the three best poster presenters – as judged by the past and vice Chairs – were invited to give short oral presentations about their exciting research. I had the pleasure of awarding the Chemical Science and Energy & Environmental Science poster prizes to Geoffrey Hutchison (University of Pittsburgh) and Patrick Holder (MIT) respectively.

Next week I’m back in the US at the Fall ACS meeting – let me know if you’d like to meet up. Or come and visit the RSC Booth 701, there’s a lot going on…
