Celebrate and Innovate at the 252nd ACS National Meeting and Exposition

Meeting

The theme of the upcoming ACS National Meeting is “Chemistry of the People, by the People, for the People.” This theme will be on full display at the highly anticipated Kavli Lecture Series, promoting groundbreaking discovery and public understanding of the world’s mounting challenges and how chemistry can provide solutions. Lecture attendees will be able to hear Dr. Omar Farha of Northwestern University speak about his work on “Bioinspired Sponges: Metal-Organic Frameworks for Combating Nerve Agents and Toxic Gases.” In addition, Dr. Chad A. Mirkin, also of Northwestern University, will speak on “Establishing a Genetic Code for Unnatural Materials.”

A great first step is to check out Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), a weekly resource that chemists count on to deliver the latest chemistry news from the worlds of research, business, education, government, and beyond.  Meet C&EN’s Talented 12. Stop by the theater to hear from this year’s group of rising stars in the world of chemistry and chemical engineering.
