Nine members of the TG Group left the Pale behind and travelled to University College Cork on the 23rd & 24th of June for the 68th Universities Chemistry Colloquium. Both Savyasachi AJ and Eoin McCarney gave 25 minute oral presentations on their work on the Thursday and Friday morning sessions respectively.
Meanwhile Bjørn la Cour Poulsen and Amy Lynes presented their posters at the designated poster session. Dermot Gillen, Sandra Estalayo Adrian, Bruno D’Agostino, Hannah Dalton and Isabel Hegarty all attended and gained a great taste of the flavour of the chemical research being conducted from all disciplines from all over the country.
On the Thursday evening all delegates attended the traditional Colloquium BBQ where research chemists were suitably nourished, collaborations were strengthened and friends were made.
The TG Group would like to thank UCC for their hosting of the event and their accommodation of the TG Group members during their stay.
