When: Thursday, October 26, 2023, 7:00 to 8:30 PM

Where: Blackburn Community Centre, 190 Glen Park Drive

Please join us for the next Discovery Café lecture: “Tales from a Research Laboratory”.

Dr. John ApSimon — retired Professor of Chemistry at Carleton University, Blackburn Hamlet resident and Discovery Café founder – began his research career in the study of the chemistry of natural products at the University of Liverpool in the 1950’s. Coming to Canada on a research fellowship to NRC, he then joined Carleton in 1962. His impressive career spans over 40 years in several domains, each of which has a fascinating story.

In this session, Dr. ApSimon will recount the reasons for pursuing his research pathways and describe his findings and experiences. He promises no chemical graphics will be shown!

Admission is free and refreshments will be served.

Looking forward to seeing you on October 26!
