Symposium Organizer: Dave Leahy, Principle Scientist, Bristol-Myers Squibb

Note: After submitting your abstract to the MAPS system, email your CV to [email protected] with the subject line: Green Organic Chemistry Research CV

The development of new synthetic methodologies and strategies has been the cornerstone upon which sustainable industrial processes are built. The pure research advances arising from academia fuel the world’s industrial innovation, while also training the scientific leaders of tomorrow. This special session highlights the research of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows across the broader organic chemistry community which has the potential to impact sustainable industrial chemistry.

The ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable will provide 16 travel grants of up to $1000 to attend the conference and provide a 20 minute oral presentation during this session. A poster session will accommodate additional presenters. All presenters will be invited to attend a graduate student workshop, and the ACS GCI Industrial Roundtable Poster reception during the conference.

To apply, please submit a detailed abstract of your presentation, including an explanation of why this work is greener than conventional approaches, to the conference MAPS system. After submitting your abstract to the MAPS system, email your CV (primary author) to [email protected] with the subject line: Green Organic Chemistry Research CV. This session is open to any academic institution globally, but is limited to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.
