The second IMSE MRes symposium took place on Thursday 19th of September where students presented their collaborative research projects with industry.

This year's cohort of MRes students from the Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering presented their exciting collaborative research projects with our industrial partners. The MRes, consisting of 6 students from across the globe, was attended by industry supervisors, academics and members of the research groups in which students are based.

The students presented talks and posters on their research projects (3 months in industry, then 3 months on the same project at Imperial). Professor George Jackson, MRes Programme Director, together with the Professor Julian Eastoe from the University of Bristol (pictured above), presented Daniele Visco and Griffin Giu with the best poster prizes. This year's prizes were kindly sponsored by the joint RSC-IChemE journal Molecular Systems Design & Engineering, which provided one year’s free access to the journal as a reward to both students.

The event provided an opportunity to network with IMSE academics and industrial partners, celebrate this year’s research projects and explore possibilities for future collaborative research.

Students were based in companies and institutes as diverse as BASF, BP, Lilly Syngenta, STFC National Labs. 

If any companies are interested in working on collaborative research projects and hosting MRes students, please contact Niall MacDowell or Steph Pendlebury.
