Saint Mary’s Department of Chemistry took home six awards at the Science Atlantic/CIC Chemistry Conference, better known as ChemCon, held May 4-6 at Memorial University. Thirteen Saint Mary’s students took part in the annual conference, which acknowledges the research excellence of students across the Maritimes.

Saint Mary’s undergraduates won awards for both oral and poster presentations related to computational modelling and material; physical, theoretical, and computational chemistry; medicinal chemistry; and analytical chemistry. All of the students’ presentations were based on research they conducted under the supervision of researchers at Saint Mary’s University.
