A Virtual Symposium


The RSC-BMCS (Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector) will host its fourteenth postgraduate symposium for PhD students and post-doctoral workers researching in biological or medicinal chemistry and related areas.  Researchers working in these areas are invited to participate. 

Call for Abstracts
If you were interested in presenting your relevant PhD or post-doctoral work as a talk or poster, you were asked to submit a single-page abstract by 5th October.   All those who submitted abstracts have been notified of the Poster Review Panel's decisions.

Posters and Prizes
The meeting’s popular poster session will be held online. Posters will be hosted on a dedicated webpage in the run-up to the meeting and there will be an opportunity for registered delegates to interact with the poster presenters via GrapeVine, a networking platform, on the day before the symposium (10th December) from 12.00-14.00 to allow presenters to interact with attendees. In addition, contact may be made with the poster authors via Twitter or e-mail during the symposium itself.
