Many congratulations to Sam and Anna on the occasion of their wedding! The ceremony was held in Anna’s home country of Italy, and several past and present members of the group were lucky enough to celebrate the happy occasion with the newly married couple. We wish you the very best in your life together!
Congratulations to Helen Burke, who joined the group in 2012 as an IRCSET postgraduate scholar, and officially graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry earlier today. Helen carried out her research on ‘Synthetic Approaches Towards Thioester-Mediated Bioconjugation and Lanthanide-Based Glycoconjugate Probes’ jointly with Eoin Scanlan, producing several publications, the most recent of which appeared in Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry (DOI: 10.1039/C6OB01712F).
Since submitting her thesis, Helen has started work in industry in England. Everyone in the TG group would like to say farewell to Helen and we all wish her the best of luck in her future endeavours!
Congratulations to Dr Niamh Murray, who graduated from the TG Group in 2009, on her wedding to Andrew Norris last weekend in Waterford Castle. It’s clear from their choice of glassware for flower arrangements that Niamh hasn’t forgot her chemistry roots!
