Dream Chemistry Lectures

Dream Chemistry Lecture (DCL) series is an extension of our Dream Chemistry Award (DCA) contest. The series aims to bring to the Institute excellent science carried out by promising researchers at an early career stage. Many of them are former "dreamers" who took part in the DCA competition. An extension of DCL is the DCL: Mentors series funded to inspire the next generation of scientists by experienced leaders in chemistry.
