Departmental Seminars - Fall 2018

The Chemistry and Biochemistry Departmental Seminar Series covers a broad range of fields in the Chemical and Biochemical Sciences. In past seminars, scientists from Academia, Government, and Industry have presented their most recent discoveries and contributions in their respective areas. This Seminar Series offers students and faculty the opportunity to interact directly with other leaders in their specializations and to gain a good overview of the entire range of fields in Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Seminars are held on Tuesdays12:30pm-1:30pm in the Clendenin Building, room 1009 or 2010 on the Kennesaw Campus (PDF). All are invited to attend.
