    SYNOPSIS

    The Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) of the RSC and the AGRI-net are hosting a postgraduate symposium for PhD and postdoctoral students undertaking chemical biology research in areas related to agriculture and the agrisciences. Chemical biology in this context is referring to physical sciences tools and technologies (in chemistry, physics, mathematics and engineering) which are being applied to tackle biological problems on a molecular level.  All students and researchers utilizing a combination of chemistry and fungal, insect or plant biology in their research projects, from any UK or European university, are invited to attend.

     

    CALL FOR POSTERS

    The deadline for abstracts closed on 31st January 2017.


    Those selected by the organising committee to give oral presentations will be notified by 28th February.
