MUN profs and students at Science Atlantic ChemCon. Thank you MSVU for a great conference

We are all just back from travels in the Maritime provinces of Canada. The Profs (Chris Kozak and Fran Kerton) attended Science Atlantic ChemCon hosted by Mount Saint Vincent University – along with Mike Katz, Chris Flinn and many of our undergraduates.  Memorial will be hosting next year – so do consider paying us a visit.  Jen Murphy and Tim Anderson took part in the Canadian Chemical Crystallography Workshop also held in Halifax.

Then the big event followed  – the 99th CSC in Halifax. Chris, Fran, Jen, Hart and Kaijie gave talks in the green chemistry symposium organized by Chris Kozak and Rob Singer. Tim, Kaijie and Hart also presented posters during the conference. Above are two photos from this conference. Jen Murphy and Kaijie Ni won talk/journal prizes from Green Chemistry and Catalysis Science & Technology. On our last night, we headed to the Halifax Ale House to celebrate our #ChemFam with honorary group member Dr. Louise Dawe from Wilfrid Laurier University.

Congratulations to all members of the group who were recognized at the 2015/16 Graduate Studies Award Ceremony. Yi Liu (PhD candidate), Kata Devaine-Pressing (PhD candidate) and Kaijie Ni (PhD candidate) were recognized as Fellows of the School of Graduate Studies (and are pictured below with Fran and Chris). Former group members Coralee Ridder and Valerie Parsons were recognized as Fellows in absentia because they are working in industry and could not attend. Erika Butler and Jochen Koerner were recognized for their prestigious scholarships (an NSERC CGS-M and a Royal Bank Fellowship for Marine Studies respectively).

Well done everyone!

Thank you UNB for hosting an epic ChemCon this year! We had so much fun and made many new friends. Congratulations to all group members on their talks and posters, with an extra special congrats to Jen Murphy on her Best Graduate Oral Presentation Prize. We are already looking forward to ChemCon 2016 at MSVU next year. Dr. Kozak is ready to be auctioned off to join another quiz team in aid of fundraising for ChemCon 2017 at MUN.
