Apparently, my PhD student Serge Zaretsky is not great at soccer… He emailed me yesterday from the Colby Sawyer College, where he is attending the Gordon Conference (Medicinal Chemistry). Those industry people (who form the majority of attendees at this GRC) are just too good… However, and more importantly, Serge got one of three poster awards and will present his work as a short talk tomorrow morning in front of the world’s leading medicinal chemists. It seems that there is a lot of interest in macrocycles (Serge’s area of expertise). No pressure there, Serge! Good luck!
