The symposium will see research talks from a selection of early career chemists, and the organising committee have lined up nine key notes speakers with diverse research interests and backgrounds, reflecting the broad remit of the event.
- In the organic and biochemistry section
- Matt Fuchter, Imperial College London
- Daniele Leonori, The University of Manchester
- Emma Walker, Diageo
- In the inorganic and materials section
- Rachel Platel, Lancaster University
- Elizabeth New, University of Sydney
- Asel Sartbaeva, University of Bath
- In the physical and analytical chemistry section
- Alex Archibald, University of Cambridge
- Kirsty Penkman, University of York
- Luis Castanheira, National Physical Laboratory
Our invited speakers have all successfully negotiated the tricky early career period and their lectures will touch on their respective career pathways, as well as delivering on their cutting-edge research. Alongside the series of plenary lectures, we will be hosting two panel sessions covering the topics of Academic Career Stories and Industry Career Stories, with a great line-up of guests including Melissa Hanna-Brown from Pfizer, and Tom Welton – Head of Natural Sciences at Imperial College London. This is an excellent opportunity for early career chemists to hear from, and put questions to, eminent figures in the community, and gain insight into their experiences of achieving career success.
In addition to the scientific programme, there will be an Impact and Outreach discussion panel, featuring notable science communicators from within the chemistry community: Zoe Schnepp, Suze Kundu and Jamie Gallagher. There will also be plenty of time for networking, in an informal and friendly atmosphere.
