Summer Newcastle University Chemical Biology Workshop

On Friday 1st July 2022 we hosted the second Chemical biology workshop at Newcastle University

Groups from across the faculty of medicine science and the school of natural and environment science presented a quick synopsis of their research with the aim to spark ideas for collaboration and more awareness of the diverse Chem Bio research happening at Newcastle University.

Ten academics delivered flash presentations on diverse areas of research (see below).

The talks were followed by a poster session where our early career researchers showcased their work and networked with colleagues from across the university.
