As part of the organizing team, Peter was attending and giving a talk at the 2014 Reaxys Inspiring Chemistry Conference
“The annual Reaxys Inspiring Chemistry Conference celebrates inspirational chemistry from some of the today’s finest chemists and some of the rising stars and future leaders in the discipline. From September 21 – 24 2014 the spectacular Swiss mountains in Grindelwald played the backdrop to the inaugural Reaxys Inspiring Chemistry Conference. Almost 70 young scientists attended the meeting along with members of the Reaxys Advisory Board, and a number of senior scientists from both academia and industry.
Plenaries came from world’class chemists: Prof. Lee Cronin, (University of Glasgow, United Kingdom), Dr Alexander Mayweg, (Roche, Switzerland), Prof. Dr. Dieter Seebach, (ETH Zürich, Switzerland) In addition there were nearly 30 presentations from the rising stars of tomorrow – the members of the Reaxys Prize Club.
The conference also hosted the Symposium & Poster Session for the annual Reaxys PhD Prize. This year’s three Winners each gave oral presentations which were followed by poster presentations of the highest quality from 32 of the finalists.”
