2018-06-06 14th Organic and Bioorganic Workshop for Leading Young Canadian Chemists

Preceding the 101th CSC meeting in Edmonton, Rylan Lundgren and myself organised the 14e Organic and Bioorganic Workshop for Leading Young Canadian Chemists. We would like to thanks our sponsors to be able to hold a highly engaging two and half day meeting with 12 junior faculty and 4 senior mentors. The ideas and networks generated during this event will play a major role in the continued growth of the community in Canada.
