Chemistry seminars

The Department maintains an outstanding seminar program with invited speakers of international stature, which enables our students to interact with leaders and innovators in their fields. Among the highlights of this program are the annual R.C. Fuson Lectureship, the biennial Sierra Nevada ACS Distinguished Chemist Lectureship, the biennial Distinguished Physical Chemist Lectureship, and the annual Chemistry Graduate Student Association Lectureship, all of which have featured Nobel Laureates.

Chemistry seminars are open to all members of the University community eager to learn about the latest topics in contemporary chemistry research.
