    A recent Perspective by P. Andrew Evans and Ben W. H. Turnbull was featured on the cover of The Journal of Organic Chemistry

    Perspective by Ben W. H. Turnbull and P. Andrew EvansA recent Perspective by Ben W. H. Turnbull and P. Andrew Evans (J. Org. Chem. 2018, 83, 11463−11479) was featured on the cover to highlight the impact of the groups work on the development of the asymmetric rhodium-catalyzed allylic substitution reactions. The background picture signifies two enantiomers from the reflection in the ocean and the lighthouse emulates the impact of how knowledge guides the way forward in science.

    Introducing the new NSERC-funded graduate student program CREATE-Materials for Advanced Photonics and Sensing (MAPS)

    CREATE-Materials for Advanced Photonics and Sensing (MAPS) is a new NSERC-funded program that provides graduate students with comprehensive training in photonics problem solving using the best tools and approaches from physics, chemistry and engineering. We do this by providing: international and industrial internships, an innovative approach to supervision including external mentors, a new method of planning, tracking and summarizing skill development tailorable to each student's unique professional goals, and learning modules that focus on problem solving, leadership, ethics and professional development. For more information, please visit the Materials for Advanced Photonics Sensing website.
