The University of West Florida Department of Chemistry has selected 24 students to attend the 247th American Chemical Society’s National Meeting and Exposition in Dallas. This year’s expo, “Chemistry and Materials for Energy,” will run from Sunday, March 16 through Thursday, March 20.
As part of the meeting, the students will present multidisciplinary research, hear the latest information in their areas of professional interest and network with colleagues. Each meeting will feature several thousand presentations organized into technical seminars that highlight important research advances. Additionally, the students will participate in panel discussions lead by current graduate students as well as mock interviews with professionals from industry, government agencies and academic institutions.
As a highlight, undergradaute student, Chris Van Leeuwen, has been selected to present his research at Sci-Mix. Sci-Mix is a poster session that features outstanding undergraduate projects in chemistry. In the past three years, three additional UWF students have been selected to present at Sci-Mix.
The UWF Chemistry Department continually produces competitive students for top ranked graduate and professional schools. Several of the students attending this year’s exposition have been recognized by national programs such as ACS Scholars and DOW-MIT ACCESS. These programs provide professional mentors for selected students while exposing them to the various sub-disciplines in the field and available careers.
The American Chemical Society organizes two national meetings and expositions every year, attracting thousands of chemists, chemical engineers, academicians, graduate and undergraduate students and other related professionals.
