The Chemistry Club would like to invite you to a special guest lecture by Dr. Véronique Gouverneur!
Dr. Gouverneur is a professor of chemistry at the University of Oxford with a research specialty in organofluorine chemistry for which she has received multiple awards, including: the Royal Society of Chemistry's Bader Award (2008) and the American Chemical Society's Award for Creative Work in Fluorine Chemistry (2015).
If you're preparing to synthesize a fluorinated pharmaceutical on your CHEM222 final exam, then this is the talk for you!

ABSTRACT: The position of Fluorine in the periodic table confers to this element unique properties that have been explored by chemists in many creative ways. Fluorine-containing molecules have found applications in material sciences, the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries, and in medical sciences.
In this lecture, Véronique Gouverneur will illustrate how the most recent advances in fluorine chemistry and radiochemistry can have a profound impact on medical imaging for immediate applications in diagnostic and pharmaceutical drug development.

All are welcome to attend.
