  • Chromographic Society ‘Grass Roots’ Educational Event

    16/06/2017 - Church Stretton

    The Chromatographic Society will be hosting the 2nd ‘Grass Roots’ educational event in the beautiful market town of Church Stretton from the 1st to the 4th of September, 2017. This course follows on from the highly successful inaugural Grass Roots meeting last year which was part of a series of events celebrating the Society’s Diamond Jubilee year. The upcoming course will focus on the fundamentals of liquid chromatography and the practical application of the same in industrial and academic settings. Training will be led by practicing separation scientists who are also longstanding leaders in their respective fields: Prof Mel Euerby (Shimadzu), Tony Taylor (Crawford Scientific), Prof Tony Edge (Agilent), and Dr Paul Ferguson (AstraZeneca). While the meeting will be primarily educational, there will also be extensive opportunities for networking, and a social programme that includes walks in the picturesque Shropshire countryside. Given the educational nature of the event, and to increase its accessibility, the Society will provide a limited number of bursaries to cover the cost of accommodation, meals, registration and a limited travel allowance for the three-day event. These include bursaries for post-graduate students, academic researchers, and Joint Pharmaceutical Action Group (JPAG) bursaries for industrial scientists from SMEs. The bursaries will allow all researchers, regardless of their financial ability, to access what we (and previous attendees) believe will be an exceptional learning experience. See attached flyer for information regarding the course content, registration fees, accommodation, travel and sponsorship packages available. The course will include approximately 20 hours of lectures alongside various hands-on activities and social events. Additional topics (as requested by attendees) may be included in the initial session, or discussed more informally during the walks. We would also be happy to discuss any specific chromatographic queries or issues which you bring from your workplace. All meals will be served at the Longmynd Hotel.
