Cronin Group to Host Symposium Celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the Regius Chair of Chemistry
This year, the University of Glasgow celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Regius Chair of Chemistry. In recognition of this milestone the current occupant of the chair, Prof Lee Cronin, will host a symposium for invited delegates, featuring talks by some of today’s most innovative and cutting edge scientists.
The Regius Chair of Chemistry, one of 13 Regius Chairs at the University of Glasgow, was founded in 1817 by King George III. It’s first occupant, Thomas Thomson, was appointed in 1818, and there have been 12 occupants to date. The current occupant is Prof Leroy (Lee) Cronin, who was appointed to the chair in 2013.
The event will take place on the 25th and 26th September, in the School of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow.
