Chemistry is a field with a strong multidisciplinary nature, covering topics from biochemistry to nanoscience to medicinal chemistry. It being a subject central to many Trinity students, this section of the TSSR is one which showcases extraordinary scientific knowledge and creativity. We’re excited to see how students will engage with this rapidly evolving field in this year’s volume.
