Buriak Group – past and present!

We had a big representation of Buriak Group members travel to Beijing, China for the ACS Symposium: Innovation in Molecular Science. Along with talks and posters from past and current group members, Jillian was one of the conference coordinators. But, as you can see from the photo – it wasn’t just all work and no play!
