3rd-year Graduate Student Research Symposium

About the Conference

The 20th annual Chemistry Graduate Student Symposium is being held May 20, 2021 virtually on Zoom.  The symposium primarily consists of research presentations by third-year graduate students in the Chemistry Ph.D. program at the University of Minnesota. Presentations will take place in four concurrent sessions and will be 20 minutes in length with an additional 5 minutes reserved for discussion.  All presentations will be formally assessed by a committee of faculty members and distinguished celebrity judges. Travel awards will be presented to those individuals judged to have given the top two seminars in each of the four sessions for a total of eight awards. Written feedback will also be provided to all presenters.  Additional information about the format of the abstracts and presentations is available.

It is the intent of the faculty that full attendance by all departmental faculty and students will be a high priority. We anticipate a full day of lectures interspersed by breaks.
