Entre Pares Meeting
Monday, Sep 10 - Tuesday, Sep 11, 2018
University Cultural Complex
Benemérita Autonomous University of Puebla
ACS on Campus is coming to the Entre Pares Seminar in Puebla, Mexico for two days of lectures and professional development sessions in September! The seminar is hosted at the University Cultural Complex of the The Benemérita Autonomous University of Puebla. Entre Pares will focus on topics around science communication and the scholarly publishing process in Mexico and abroad. The event is aimed towards the Mexican and international scientific community and is appropriate for undergraduates, graduates, postdocs, and faculty. For more information, visit http://entrepares.conricyt.mx/.
Join ACS on Campus September 10-11 in the morning for lectures by Editor-in-Chiefs, Kirk Schanze of ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces and M.G. Finn of ACS Combinatorial Science. In the afternoon, participate in free workshops on how to get your research publishing, scientific collaboration through ACS/CAS databases, mastering the peer review process, preparing abstracts, and communicating your science effectively. We will also have a special panel presentation by the ACS Student Chapter at Universidad de las Américas Puebla.
Check back soon for more information.

Kirk Schanze, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces
Robert A. Welch Distinguished University Professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio
Kirk Schanze earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Florida State University in 1979 and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1983. He was appointed a Miller Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, from 1984-1986 and began his independent faculty career at the University of Florida in 1986. Schanze was University Distinguished Professor and Prominski Professor of Chemistry at the University of Florida until 2016. He is currently the Robert A. Welch Distinguished University Professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio. He was a Senior Editor of the ACS journal Langmuir from 2000 – 2008. Since 2008, Schanze is Editor-in-Chief of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, the ACS journal focused on chemistry and engineering of applications-focused research in materials and interfaces. Schanze’s research is focused on the field of light-matter interactions in molecular, polymer and materials systems. His group has developed and studied materials with applications in luminescence, chemo- and bio-sensing, light emitting diodes, solar cells and solar fuels.
M.G. Finn, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, ACS Combinatorial Science
Professor and Chair; James A. Carlos Family Chair for Pediatric Technology, Georgia Tech
M.G. Finn received his Ph.D. degree in 1986 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Professor K. Barry Sharpless on the mechanism of the titanium-tartrate catalyzed asymmetric epoxidation reaction, followed by an NIH postdoctoral fellowship with Prof. J.P. Collman at Stanford University on metalloporphyrin chemistry. He joined the faculty of the University of Virginia in 1988, where his group studied the reactivity of Fisher carbene complexes, metal-substituted phosphorus ylides, and a variety of transition metal-catalyzed processes. Professor Finn moved to the Department of Chemistry and the Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology at The Scripps Research Institute in 1999, where he teaches physical organic chemistry and molecular evolution and directs the Scripps Predoctoral Training Program in Molecular Evolution. In 2013, Professor Finn moved to the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
