|Congratulations to MSED Winners!|
I would like to congratulate Alison Stewart and Amanda Fawcett for receiving oral presentation prizes from the Macromolecular Science and Engineering Division (MSED) of the CIC. Alison and Amanda both presented in MSED symposia at the recent CSC National Meeting in Calgary. Alison (who received a departmental travel scholarship has been awarded 1st Place for her presentation entitled "Diels-Alder Crosslinked Hydrogels", describing a project she is carrying out in the group of Prof. Harald Stover. Amanda was awarded 2nd Place for her presentation entitled "Thermal- and Photo-responsive Silicones", describing a project she is carrying out in the group of Prof. Michael Brook.
I am extremely pleased to see that students from our department are sweeping the prizes at national conferences. Clearly we are doing something right!
Incidentally, both Alison and Amanda received departmental travel scholarships to attend the CSC this year.
Well done, Alison and Amanda!
