• Wednesday 22nd April 2020 4th Agri-Science Chemical Biology Postgraduate Symposium





    The Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) of the RSC, AGRI-net and Imperial College’s Agri-Futures Lab 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. The symposium will be held in at The Molecular Sciences Research Hub, White City Campus, Imperial College London, W12 0BZ. 

    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.

    Outline Programme

    Registration will open at 9am on 22nd April 2020, and the first talk will begin at 10am. The symposium will consist of eight oral student presentations, plus student flash presentations and talks from academic and industrial key note speakers from Imperial College, Syngenta and Bayer Crop Science. A free conference lunch will be provided on the day.

    Call for Abstracts - deadline extended!

    If you are interested in presenting your relevant PhD or post-doctoral work, please submit a half-page abstract by 18th March 2020 via the registration site. Those selected by the organising committee to give oral presentations will be notified by 24th March 2020.  Please register and submit your abstract via the event website. Prizes will be awarded for the best two oral presentations and best two posters.
