MUCS 1000th Lecture

The 1000th Lecture of the Melbourne University Chemical Society (MUCS) was held on 17th Aug in the Masson Theatre.

Professor Lynn Francesconi, City University of New York, delivered the lecture, entitled 'Radiochemistry: benefits to society and challenges to be overcome', which also celebrated the 100th anniversary of Marie Curie's award of the Nobel prize in Chemistry. MUCS started in 1903 and it is fitting that the 1000th MUCS Lecture was delivered in the International Year of Chemistry. After the lecture, a celebratory dinner was held in University House.
