 ACS on Campus will be at the University of Tel Aviv on November 23, 2017. Join top researchers and ACS Editors for a morning of discussions on how to get published, maximize your research with SciFinder, choose a post doc position, and master the peer review process.

The program is FREE and open to all students and researchers studying the sciences. A coffee break and lunch will be provided to all registered attendees. Registration is highly encouraged.

Speakers

Chris Holland, PhD

Associate Editor, ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering

Dr Holland is based in The University of Sheffield in the Materials Science and Engineering Department where he leads the Natural Materials Group. He currently holds a prestigious EPSRC Early Career Fellowship and was previously at Oxford University where he obtained his degrees and doctorate. Dr Holland is an Associate Editor for the newly established journal ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering.

His research uses tools developed for the physical sciences to better understand Nature’s materials, from latex to collagen, but with a focus on silk. By studying how silk is spun he has been able to gain unique insights into silks’ biodiversity, structure and evolution.

His work has made important links between natural and industrial fibre processing which has led to several patents and a fundamentally new way of designing, testing and fabricating bio-inspired materials evidenced by being Co-ordinator of a recently award H2020 FET Open project.

Ayelet Ofarim, PhD

CAS, Arad - Ophir Ltd., Ramat-Hasharon, Israel

Dr. Ofarim graduated in Physical Chemistry from Tel-Aviv University, Post-Doc in Physics from Konstanz University, Germany. Joined Arad-Ophir at the beginning of 2016, where she is responsible of the scientific business development.
