Friday, May 26 will mark the first Celebration of Women in Chemistry symposium at The Wertheim UF Scripps Institute in Jupiter, Florida. Join us, as we highlight standout research from women chemists specializing in chemical biology, natural products, translational research and more. Remarkable careers are born from connection with great collaborators and mentors. Make those connections and share your own work with leaders in the field and future stars alike at this half-day symposium. Connect with potential collaborators and colleagues during poster sessions, career panels and keynote Q&A sessions, and then enjoy all that the beautiful Palm Beach County, Florida area has to offer.
