Six Pitt graduate students and a student from Carnegie Mellon University have been selected for the American Chemical Society Spring 2021 National Meeting Graduate Student Symposium Planning Committee (GSSPC).

Emily Eikey, Paige Moncure, Xing Yee Gan, Zoe Simon and Sydney Brooks from the Department of Chemistry and Michael Cowan from the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, in the Swanson School of Engineering will organize a full-day symposium at the ACS National Meeting in March 2021 in San Antonio, Texas. 

The Graduate Student Symposia series was created to increase graduate student involvement in planning for ACS meetings and encourage conversation among scientists at all stages of their careers. The symposium, entitled “Bridging Disciplines to Build Better Materials,” is designed to highlight successful collaborations in the field of materials chemistry. The symposium will feature talks from a variety of distinguished scientists.
