Jovana Milic, a research scientist at EPFL’s Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces, and Shang-Jung Wu, a PhD student at the Laboratory of Nanobiotechnology have won awards for the Best Poster Presentation at the Swiss Chemical Society’s 2018 Fall Μeeting.
The Swiss Chemical Society (SCS) is an organization that represents chemists and chemistry-related scientists in Switzerland and abroad. It also supports the exchange of scientific and technical know-how, and offers networking possibilities to the academic and industrial community. The SCS counts about 2700 individual and institutional members in more than 50 countries, and publishes the journal CHIMIA.
Every year during their Fall Meeting, the SCS offers Best Poster Awards in nine categories; along with their Best Oral Presentation Awards, these award programs are among of the most highly remunerated in the field.
This year, with the Fall meeting being held at EPFL, the Best Poster Award for Physical Chemistry went to Jovana Milic, a research scientist with Michael Grätzel’s lab at EPFL. The award for Analytical Sciences went to Shang-Jung Wu, a PhD student at the Laboratory of Nanobiotechnology, headed by Professor Ardemis Boghossian.
Each award includes a certificate and CHF250 in cash, a travel voucher of CHF750 to attend an international conference, and an invitation to each scientist to present their research in the laureates’ issue of CHIMIA.
