Department of Chemistry, Wolfson LT
We are excited to announce that University of Cambridge will be the first stop on the ACS on Campus United Kingdom Roadshow in February 2018. The event is FREE and open to all students and researchers studying the sciences.
The program will feature world-class researchers, including Prof. Chris Holland, Associate Editor of ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering, Prof. Klaas Wynne, Associate Editor of Journal of the American Chemical Society, and Dr. Dinesh Soares, Managing Editor of ACS Omega. Don’t miss the “10 Tips for Scholarly Publishing” panel discussion with the Associate Editors and Managing Editors of ACS Publications. You’ll learn how to choose the best journal for your research, become a master of social media, and much more!
The event is free but registration is highly recommended.

Dinesh Soares, Ph.D.
Managing Editor, ACS Omega
Editorial Outreach, American Chemical Society International
Dr. Dinesh Soares is part of the American Chemical Society International (ACSI) team based in Oxford, UK and his primary responsibility is serving as Managing Editor (Europe) for the multidisciplinary, Open Access journal, ACS Omega. As ACS’s first Editorial Development representative based in Europe, Dinesh is also engaged in editorial outreach for the full ACS Publications portfolio. Dr. Soares joined ACS after working at the University of Edinburgh for 10 years, where he was a Research Fellow at the MRC Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine and the MRC Centre for Inflammation Research. Dinesh has a Bachelor’s degree with dual majors in Biochemistry and Zoology from St. Xavier’s College (Bombay, India), a Master’s degree in Bioinformatics from the University of York (UK), and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Edinburgh (UK). He has co-authored over 50 publications, having worked in many different areas of the biological and chemical sciences during his research career, from the genetics of disease through to translational medicine.
Klaas Wynne, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, Journal of the American Chemical Society
Chair of Chemical Physics, School of Chemistry, University of Glasgow
Klaas Wynne is chair of chemical physics in the School of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow since 2010 and before that was a professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Strathclyde. He is an Associate Editor with the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) since 2017. Klaas is interested in the structure and dynamics of liquids and solutions. He studies peptides, proteins, and other biomolecules but treats them as amorphous blobs behaving much like gels. Klaas did his MSci (1987) and PhD (1990) in chemistry at the University of Amsterdam under the tutelage of Prof Joop van Voorst applying picosecond lasers to highly nonlinear phenomena such as the infamous Raman photon echo. In 1991, he was awarded a NATO research fellowship to work with Robin Hochstrasser at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, USA. He stayed as a postdoc in Robin’s group for five years, applying femtosecond spectroscopy on a wide range of topics including coherence in photochemical reactions, ultrafast biological electron transfer and isomerization, and coherence in degenerate quantum systems.
Chris Holland, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering
EPSRC Early Career Fellowship, The University of Sheffield in the Materials Science and Engineering Department
Chris is based in The University of Sheffield in the Materials Science and Engineering Department where he leads the Natural Materials Group (www.naturalmaterialsgroup.com). He currently holds an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship and was previously at Oxford Zoology where he undertook his degrees and JRF. Outside the lab he is an Associate Editor for ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering and Chair of the IoM3 Natural Materials Association. His research uses tools developed for the physical sciences to better understand how processing effects performance in natural materials. Using silk as a model system and studying it is spun he has been able to gain unique insights into this material’s biodiversity, structure and evolution. Additionally, this work has made important links between natural and industrial fibre processing which has led to several patents and a fundamentally new way of designing, testing and fabricating bio-inspired materials which is now being realised as Co-ordinator of the H2020 FET Open project FLIPT (www.h2020flipt.eu).
