Successful poster sessions attract the crowds at ISACS13

Two lively poster sessions saw the room packed out at the recent ISACS13 meeting on “Challenges in Inorganic and Materials Chemistry”, held in Dublin. Over 120 posters were presented, attracting large crowds and yielding 5 winners.   

Katie-Louise Finney of Durham University, UK was awarded the first prize, sponsored by Chemistry World, for her poster on PARASHIFT proton magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy. She receives £250 and a Chemistry World mug.  

Katie-Louise Finney with Neil Withers (Chemistry World Features Editor)  L-R: Lily Dixon, Pierre Sutra, Jane Hordern (Chemical Science Deputy Editor), Paolo Pirovano 

Lily Dixon (University of Cambridge, UK), Pierre Sutra (Université de Toulouse, France) and Dariusz Matoga (Jagiellonian University, Poland) each received a Chemical Science Poster Prize, while Paolo Pirovano (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland) was awarded a Dalton Transactions Poster Prize.  

The runners-up all receive a certificate and a copy of ‘The Case of the Poisonous Socks’ from the Royal Society of Chemistry’s popular science collection.
