Chemical Biology Workshop

On Tuesday 15th March we hosted a Chemical biology workshop at Newcastle University, involving academics across the faculty of medicine science and the school of natural and environment science.  Ten academics delivered flash presentations on diverse areas of research (see below).  A great way to get the group talking and learning about the chemical biology research going on across the university.
