Join ACS on Campus and the editors from ACS Central Science for a two hour program on the scholarly publishing process and networking at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology on Thursday, April 20. Featured speakers include Christopher J. Chang,  Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley and Senior Editor for ACS Central Science; and Miranda Paley, Managing Editor of ACS Central Science. 

The event is FREE and open to all students and researchers studying chemistry and the applied sciences. The program will include a complimentary tea and coffee reception with the ACS editors. Registration is not required but highly encouraged.


Miranda Paley, PhD

Managing Editor, ACS Central Science

Miranda Paley joined ACS at the beginning of 2015 and helped facilitate the launch of the American Chemical Society’s first completely open access journal just three months later. ACS Central Science is designed to highlight the most impactful science both in core chemistry and in allied disciplines, all without any fees to readers or authors. She works with colleagues across many divisions of ACS to ensure the journal runs smoothly and to solicit and promote content. She is a graduate of Grinnell College and received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, Irvine, where her research under the guidance of Dr. Jennifer Prescher, focused on engineering the light-generating enzyme from fireflies, called luciferase, to develop a tool designed for tracking different cell populations in live animals.

Christopher J. Chang, PhD

Senior Editor, ACS Central Science

Christopher J. Chang is the Class of 1942 Chair Professor of Chemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology and HHMI Investigator at UC Berkeley, as well as a Faculty Scientist in the Chemical Sciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He was born in Ames, IA and received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Caltech in 1997, working with Prof. Harry Gray on spectroscopy of high-valent metal-nitrido and metal-oxo complexes. After spending a year as a Fulbright scholar in Strasbourg, France with Nobel Laureate Dr. Jean-Pierre Sauvage on chemical topology and molecular machines, Chris received his Ph.D. from MIT in 2002 under the supervision of Prof. Dan Nocera, where his graduate work focused on proton-electron transfer and oxygen catalysis. He stayed at MIT as a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Steve Lippard, working on zinc biology and then began his independent career at UC Berkeley in 2004. Research in the Chang lab is focused on chemical biology and inorganic chemistry, with particular interests in molecular imaging and catalysis applied to neuroscience, metabolic and infectious diseases, and sustainable energy.
