The group road-tripped to Regina, Saskatchewan (an 8 hour van journey) to attend the 27th Canadian Symposium on Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (CSTCC2016) July 10th-15th. Here we are checking out the entrance sign:
20160715_131050A number of group members presented posters. Here’s Qiming presenting his poster “Initial excited-state structural dynamics of fluoro-substituted uracils: A computational study” to Prof. Josh Hollet (Winnipeg):


Cat-Tuong prepares to answer questions about her poster “Computational Study on Relative Stabilities and Excited States of Tautomers of Modified Emissive RNA Nucleobases” for Prof. Mark Thachuk (UBC):


Tao looks for a response to a question from Dr. Michael Schuurman (Ottawa and NRC) on his poster “Benchmarking two-photon absorption TDDFT results for reference organic fluorophores”:


Melis discussen her poster “Photophysical properties of RNA Nucleobase Analogues: A computational study of two photon absorption” with Prof. Rob Mawhinney (Lakehead):


Finally, Mohammad looks happy about his poster “Computational screening of two-photon absorption in fluorescent protein chromophores made from non-canonical amino acids”:
