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!
