Prize Lecture for outreach and teaching – Final Reminder!

To recognise the outstanding achievements of the late Dr Andrew Parkin in his roles as scientist and teacher, the YCG holds an annual Parkin Lecture at the YCG satellite meeting. The YCG satellite directly precedes the BCA Spring Meeting, which this year takes place on the 6 – 9 April 2020 at the University of Leeds. The prize lecture is awarded to a Young Crystallographer who has been recognised for outstanding contributions to promoting science, raising public awareness of science, teaching crystallography/science or showing originality in outreach and teaching activities.

Friday 31st of January is the deadline for nominations by peers, supervisors, or self-nomination. If you are, or know someone who is deserving of this award, please come forward! Full details can be found here.

Please send your nominations to [email protected]

Holistic Approaches to Structural Characterisation: BCA IG Autumn Meeting 2018

The Industrial Group of the British Crystallography Association and the CCP-NC are happy to announce a joint meeting entitled “Holistic Approaches to Structural Characterisation” on the 13-14th November (mid-morning to lunchtime), in Durham.

The meeting will focus on presenting NMR crystallography (particularly of small molecule organics) to crystallographers working in industry, as well as providing opportunities for crystallographers to explain the challenges they face. It should be an excellent opportunity to establish new contacts.

For more information look Here, and to register follow the link Here.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
