Pictures from the National Postgraduate Symposium for the RSC Chemical Biology and BioOrganic Group

Our group were well represented at the Postgraduate Symposium, which took place on May 19th 2016. The meeting was attended by postgraduate students from all over the country and packed full of excellent PhD talks and a diverse display of high quality posters.


Our New Research Lab

We are extremely lucky to have recently moved into a beautiful new research laboratory. We moved in in February 2016 and it is now a hive of activity.


The New Lab Build

Here are some pictures of our new lab under construction. We should be moving in within the next six weeks! This will represent our third and (hopefully) final lab move.

Lab Moving Day

It was a busy weekend moving labs but we are now settling into our new (temporary) lab in Chemistry, which has a lot more space. Below, there are some pictures of our new lab, which is due for completion in about a month.

Some nice new equipment

Our lab has been kitted out with the latest synthetic chemistry and biotechnology equipment. We're set up for synthetic chemistry, microbiology and molecular biology, including a new GC-FID to simplify all our analysis. We will be relocating to a brand new research lab within the School of Chemistry in October 2015.


Gregynog Synthesis Workshop
