Conference & Events
1st Agriscience Chemical Biology Postgraduate Symposium
Synopsis The Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) of the RSC is 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, engineering) which are being applied to tackle biological problems on a molecular level. The symposium will be held in the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College, London on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd November 2012. All students and researchers utilising a combination of physical sciences with fungal, insect or plant biology in their research projects, from any UK university are invited to attend.
