Final day of the exhibition!It was another really busy day here at the ACS Fall Meeting! We met with Angela Russell (University of Oxford, UK), Concepción González-Bello (Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Spain) and Barbara Mroczkowskib and Andrew Flint (NCI, USA) to discuss their latest research and presentations here at the meeting, so look out for these interviews!
