Professor Gregory D. Scholes

The Centre for Advanced Materials and Biomaterials Research (CAMBR) at Western held the 2015 Distinguished Lecture and Research Showcase on Monday, April 27, 2015.

The day began at Conron Hall with the keynote lecture given by Professor Gregory D. Scholes of Princeton University. His presentation was titled "Photosynthetic light harvesting and ultrafast energy transfer".

Three sessions of oral presentations were followed by a reception and poster presentations in the atrium of the Physics and Astronomy building.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy was well represented during the course of the event.
