Cambridge research conference merges with postgrad presentations

ON 25–26 June the University of Cambridge’s Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CEB) held its annual research conference. Unlike previous conferences, this event followed a new format as it merged the department’s research conference with its postgraduate presentations.

According to the conference’s Academic Coordinator Alexei Lapkin, merging the events was aimed at better accommodating its research community, which has grown significantly over the last few years, and allowing its postgraduates to showcase their work to a wider audience. Lapkin is a Professor of Sustainable Reaction Engineering within the CEB department. 

Cambridge’s CEB department works at the interfaces between engineering, chemistry, biology, and physics. This year’s CEB Research Conference allowed the department to showcase its multidisciplinary research though talks given to internal and external attendees alike by PhD students, postdoctoral students,
and academics.
