Announcing the Second Annual Chemistry Graduate Research Symposium

Week of Tuesday, February 22, 2022

Join us for the second annual Chemistry Department Graduate Research Symposium (GRS)! The symposium will begin on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, and run through the remainder of the week. Presented by ChemSAC, Synthesis Club, the Curie Club, and IBAC, this symposium serves to connect all students in the department for professional development, networking, and an opportunity for students to present their research to prospective students, colleagues, and alumni. 

The symposium will feature more than 30 talks from graduate students, including 20 minute live (in-person) seminars and 5 minute pre-recorded talks. For detailed information about the research that will be featured at the GRS, follow the link to the schedule below:
