ESTIV has granted a best poster award, including a prize of 500€ and 1 year free ESTIV membership, during the congress to Timothy Allen from the Centre for Molecular Informatics of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge-United Kingdom for the poster entitled “Computational approaches for predicting molecular initiating events”.
