We invite you to participate in our 2018 School of Chemical Sciences Research Showcase.

The exciting, one-day event will feature postgraduate student talks, a poster session, competitions and a high-profile keynote lecture, or two.

This showcase provides an excellent opportunity for PhD students to present their research to their peers and the New Zealand chemistry community.

It will be followed by a reception to bring students, staff, industry, and government researchers together.

We look forward to seeing you there.
