The Department of Chemistry at Emory University frequently welcomes researchers from around the world to share their science with our community. Our Spring 2017 schedule includes a special Johnston Seminar with Frank Neese (Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversionas well as a Hightower-sponsored visit by Robert J. McMahon (University of Wisconsin, Madison) who will serve as the keynote speaker for our annual undergraduate poster session and awards ceremony in April. Additionally, our graduate students will host a special seminar with Carl Lineberger (University of Colorado, Boulder), the first-ever recipient of their “Chemmy Award” for excellence in chemistry.

The most up-to-date seminar schedule is always available on our department calendar on the front page of chemistry.emory.edu. Additionally, seminars are included on the printed calendars posted weekly around the department.

Seminars are open to all members of the Emory community. All seminars take place in Atwood Hall 360, the Department of Chemistry seminar room. Monday seminars take place at 4 p.m. and Wednesday seminars take place at 2 p.m. Occasionally, special seminars may take place at other days/times/locations.
