The 2018 National Graduate Research Polymer Conference (NGRPC) took place on June 10–12 at the University of Minnesota. This conference was organized by UMN students, including Anatolii Purchel (Chair) and Monica Ohnsorg (Organizing Committee). Researchers from around the country participated in the NGRPC, which was sponsored by the ACS Polymer Chemistry Division (POLY) and numerous academic and industry partners. The primary goal of this conference is to facilitate interactions between graduate students, postdocs, distinguished faculty, and industry representatives.
Notably, two Reineke Group members, Annie Luke and Hussnain Sajjad, received honors at the conference. Annie received an honorable mention presentation award and Hussnain received an outstanding poster award. Congratulations!
