Keele Hosts RSC Carbohydrate Group Meeting
The event was attended by 50+ ECRs from the UK, Ireland and Denmark and was opened by Professor Jonathan Wastling, Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences. The program featured a series of short research presentations from PhD researchers, PDRAs and recently appointed academics/fellows. This was supported by invited plenary lectures from five established UK academic and industrial experts who also discussed their individual career pathways alongside their research achievements, illustrating the opportunities available to aspiring young researchers.
The meeting was hosted by Dr Gavin Miller and the Buchanan Memorial Award for the best ECR presentation was presented to Dr Ben Wagstaff (from the John Innes Centre, Norwich) by new Head of School, Professor Mike Watkinson.
