Swiss Chemical Society Fall Meeting

Joe presented a poster at the SCS Fall Meeting in Zurich. The poster described recent work involving metal-centred glycoclusters, tageting carbohydrate-lectin interactions. It was a good opportunity to stay connected with Swiss colleagues from his postdoctoral work in University of Bern, as well as present new research in an international setting.

Afterwards, Joe had some meetings in University of Bern before returning to Galway.

44th Institute of Chemistry Ireland Congress at Maynooth

Joe was invited to give a flash presentation at the ICI’s annual congress in Maynooth University, organised by Dr Rob Elmes.

The title of his talk was “Carbohydrate-functionalisation – enhancing catalytic activity and potential for sensor design”, and he spoke about his work from his postdoctoral research in University of Bern, along with preliminary results from his new project in NUI Galway. The Congress was a great opportunity to engage with chemistry researchers from around Ireland, including old colleagues.
