ACS on Campus is bringing our top speakers and development sessions to Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México! Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from ACS Editor-in-Chiefs on how to advance your research and career in the sciences. Network with your peers and make lasting connections over networking breaks.
The program will feature lectures from world-class researchers including Editor-in-Chiefs, Kirk Schanze of ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces and M.G. Finn of ACS Combinatorial Science. Attend the “10 Tips for Scholarly Publishing” panel discussion with the Editor-in-Chiefs and Associate Editors of ACS Publications. You’ll learn how to choose the best journal for your research, get the attention of the editors with an effective cover letter, and much more! You’ll also get an inside look at the ACS Reviewer Lab and other ACS resources that will help advance your career.
Check back soon for more information and to register.
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.
Carlos Toro, Ph.D.
Managing Editor – ACS Earth and Space Chemistry, ACS Photonics, and Chemistry of Materials
Dr. Toro earned his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from La Universidad del Zulia (Venezuela), where he was started his academic career as a computational chemist. In 2010, Carlos obtained his Doctorate degree in Chemistry (Material Science track) from the University of Central Florida, where he used multi-photon absorption spectroscopy to study the nonlinear optical properties of chiral molecules. Afterwards, Dr. Toro held a position as the Ellen D. Williams Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Maryland, where his research focused on the study of high resolution transient infrared absorption spectroscopy of molecular super rotors. In Spring 2014, he joined the ACS Publications Division as Managing Editor.
