Students shine at RISE2013 ugrad conference

RISE2013, this year's Reactive Intermediates Student Exchange conference, brought together 10 top undergraduates from across Canada to share their summer research results on the campus of UBC Vancouver. The one-day conference, held on August 23rd, featured research talks spanning a range of areas, including biological photophysics, photoredox catalysis, main group reactivity and catalysis, and the chemical behaviour of dyes. Sponsored in part by the Inorganic Division, the RISE conference seeks to provide the opportunity for students to present their research results - as well as to meet a broad distribution of faculty and other researchers from across the country. The RISE Canada program will be seeking new RISE Scholars for the 2014 summer term during the upcoming fall academic term. Students in participating institutions are strongly encouraged to consider applying. Go to for further details
