Chemistry Lab Dinner

Alumni and guests are invited to the UCL Chemistry Lab Dinner which will be held on Friday 21st November 2014.

Before the dinner there will be an opportunity to meet fellow alumni in the Nyholm Room from 4.30pm for tea and coffee.  This is followed by a lecture at 5pm in the Chemistry Lecture Theatre.  This year the lecture will be given by the departments' very own Professor Giuseppe Battaglia, entitled "Molecular Bionics: Copying Nature to Control Nature", which will then be followed by a drinks reception in the Nyholm Room.

The formal dinner itself will consist of a delicious three-course meal and accompanying drinks which will be held in the Wilkins Jeremy Bentham Room at 7.15pm. 

Bookings can be made via the on-line booking form.
