Chris, Fran, Jen, Erika and Kori represented our team at the 100th CSC held in Toronto a couple of weeks ago. Chris and Fran were invited to talk as part of the “Frontiers in Controlled Polymerization” symposium and Kori received a travel award to participate in the Green Chemistry Crash Course and Industrial Case Study (organized by the UofT Green Chemistry Initiative with GreenCentre Canada). Thank you to the organizers for a wonderful conference both scientifically and socially. Also, thanks to the Blue Jays for being in town, which meant we got to check out some games at the Rogers Centre 🙂

The Memorial University Chemistry Society (MUNCS) hosted the region’s chemical conference this past weekend – over 140 chemists attended. Well done to all involved. Chris and Fran are especially proud of their group members who did an excellent job giving their talks and presenting their posters, and making sure that our visitors had a good time!

There’s no place quite like Newfoundland

Our University is the easternmost one in N.America. We are situated in ‘iceberg alley’ so our spring is a little bit later than elsewhere in Canada. However, we are treated to nature’s spectacle, which cannot be seen so easily anywhere else in the world. We are truly blessed to live, study and work in such a unique location.

Here are a couple of photos of the green chem profs this past Easter weekend.

Good luck in your exams everyone and have a wonderful summer of research and adventure.
