Graduate Students Win Bid To Plan ACS Symposium

A committee of eight graduate students from the University of Minnesota has been selected to organize a symposium at the 250th ACS National Meeting and Exposition in August 2015 in Boston, MA.

They will be presenting a symposium themed, “Academic Innovations for Tomorrow’s Industries,” to highlight how academia can use commercialization as a mechanism for bringing the rewards of research to the world.

Their committee was selected from a pool of applications from institutions across the country.

The Graduate Student Symposium Planning Committee includes Jeffrey Ting, Kailey Soller, Ben Neisen, Victoria Szlag, Randy Siedschlag, Solaire Finkenstaedt-Quinn, Leon Lillie, and Lindsay Johnson (committee chair).
