Dear members,

The date of the symposium is approaching! Our theme for this year is ‘A Chemical Journey’! With this theme we intend to showcase some of the career options you could have once you graduate. For this purpose, we have invited the following speakers:

  • Prof. dr. Max von Delius – researcher at the University of Ulm. Specialises in dynamic covalent chemistry
  • Dr. Gabriella Pizzuti – Head of Research and Development at Alcami Corporation. Former PhD student in the Feringa group at the RUG
  • Dr. Arno Hazekamp – founder of Hazekamp Herbal Consultancy, a company that specialises in contract work related to cannabis and medicinal chemistry
  • Dr. Jeffrey Buter – Postdoc at our university. Veni grant recipient. Works at the interface of chemistry and immunology 
  • Prof. dr. Marleen Kamperman – researcher at our very own RUG. Works in the field of biomimetics, developing materials that imitate nature, such as gecko feet adhesives

Our chairman of the day will be prof. dr. Kees Hummelen, chairman of the Chemistry of (Bio-)Molecular Materials and Devices group.

The symposium is scheduled for the whole day on Thursday, the 17th of October in hall BB5161.0105. The ticket costs are free for members and 5€ for non-members. More information can be found here

We hope to see you all there!
