Professor Gill Reid elected to become President of the Royal Society of Chemistry

Professor Gill Reid FRSC from the University of Southampton has been elected by members of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) to become president-elect.

This follows an election process in which members of the Society chose between five presidential candidates – the first time in its history to have had more than two candidates standing for election. Gill will take up the role when the incoming president – Professor Tom Welton – completes his term of office in July 2022.

Gill, who is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Southampton, will soon end her term as Head of Chemistry at the University. Her successor, Professor Jonathan Essex, was recently announced. View more here
