The group headed to the Guru on Friday 28th to say goodbye to our longest serving member - Dr Dave McKay (far left in the photo below). After completing his three year post-doc with us on hydrodefluorination he is heading to St. Andrews to join Prof. Sharon Ashbrook's group to focus on computational NMR. Good luck Dave and we'll all miss you!
