School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Holds Annual Postgraduate Research Event
The School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering has held its annual postgraduate research event, in partnership with world-leading pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly.
The event, which was delivered online across the 6th and 7th July, provides the School's postgraduate students with an opportunity to present their most recent findings, and discuss their work with peers, School academics, and industrial academics from partner organisation, Eli Lilly.
More than 20 postgraduate research students from the School presented their work, from across a broad range of disciplines within chemistry and chemical engineering.
Speaking of the event, Director of Postgraduates, Dr Mark Muldoon said:
"It was fantastic to hear about the research being carried out in the School across a wide breadth of topics in chemistry and chemical engineering. The standard of talks was exceptionally high and the judging panel had a difficult time to select winners from this cohort. We are grateful to colleagues at Eli Lilly, who not only sponsored this event, but also gave their valuable time, participating in discussions with the students both in relation to their research, and future careers."
A number of prizes, sponsored by Eli Lilly, were awarded to presenters following judging by a panel consisting of School academics, and Dr Kevin Lydon, Consultant Scientist at Eli Lilly Kinsale. Prizes were awarded to Toyah Warnock, Chunchun Li, Tommaso Pellegrinelli, Gavin Irvine, and Andrew McClure.
Following the event, Dr Lydon, who also delivered a webinar in relation to careers at Lilly at the event, said:
"Again a very impressive year for research in chemistry and chemical engineering at Queen’s. The postgraduate students presented their work to an excellent technical depth and with great confidence."
This event will complement a further postgraduate event set to take place later in the summer, which will allow students to discuss their work across a number of online poster sessions.
