Charl joined the ACS Fall meeting in Washington earlier this week. He spoke at two symposia – the “Metal-Containing and Metallo-Supramolecular Polymers and Materials” as well as the “Non-conventional Building Blocks in Conjugated Materials: Innovative Designs & New Applications”. It was great to meet friends, colleagues and collaborators from across the world at a great meeting!
Bella spent the week with the Faul Research Group as part of her work experience. It was great to have her, and we certainly enjoyed the fabulous cakes she brought to say thank you!
We hope that it is rather “auf Wiedersehen” rather than goodbye! Ben‘s time in the FRG is coming to an end, and we celebrated, true to group character, with food! We all headed down to the harbour side and enjoy pizza (and pies!)!
We had the pleasure to host Dr Florian von Wrochem from Sony’s Materials Laboratories (Stuttgart, Germany). It was a great opportunity to put together an exciting symposium, with former FRG member Dr James Thomas (funded by the BCFN, and now a post-doc in Oxford) as well as Liam speaking.
Photos to follow soon!
