Timms Symposium!

We had the pleasure of having a great line-up of speakers for the Peter Timms Symposium (named after the late Peter Timms, a pioneering chemist and the perfect gentleman!).

Arne (Thomas), Alex (from the FRG), Zac (Hudson, from the Manners Group) gave excellent lectures. The 2014 Timms Lecture was then given by Prof Craig Hawker (UCSB) – an exciting overview of some of the activities from his research laboratories.  It was then our pleasure to have Liz Timms, Peter’s wife, hand over the Timms award to Craig.

The day was wrapped up with a wine reception! Thanks to all who were involved and helped to make it such a successful day!
