Yesterday was our 2020 PGR Chemistry symposium! For the first time in it’s history, the event took place virtually and students and staff all agreed it was a GREAT success. After a bit of a technical related delay at the start, the event was kicked off by an opening address given by our Head of Department, Professor John Storey.
