News Feb 06, 2006
CEM Corporation has announced that the upcoming 4th International Microwaves in Chemistry Conference, which will take place March 8-11, 2006 at the Wyndham Orlando Resort in Orlando, Florida, has pre-registered the largest number of international attendees to date.
The Microwaves in Chemistry Conference is the premiere symposium for the discussion of the latest research using microwave technology in various fields of chemistry and continues to grow in popularity.
This year’s conference features a record 23 speakers from industry and academia presenting research on a range of topics in three tracks: medicinal chemistry, biosciences and emerging technologies.
Two workshops will be offered prior to the start of the conference sessions. Basics in Microwave Synthesis cover the fundamental theories behind microwave technology for organic synthesis.
Teaching Microwave Synthesis in the Undergraduate Classroom presents methods for introducing college students to microwave synthesis and will be conducted by Professors Cynthia McGowan and Nicholas Leadbeater, authors of the soon-to-be-published undergraduate laboratory manual, Clean, Fast Organic Chemistry: Microwave-Assisted Laboratory Experiments.
The Microwaves in Chemistry Conference will also be offering a $750 cash prize for best poster. The deadline for poster abstracts is February 16th.
Old age is the greatest risk factor for many diseases, including Alzheimer's disease (AD) and cancer. Geroprotectors are a recently identified class of anti-aging compounds. New research has now identified a unique subclass of these compounds, dubbed geroneuroprotectors (GNPs), which are AD drug candidates and slow the aging process in mice.READ MORE
