We are pleased to announce that University of Delhi will be the first stop on the ACS on Campus India Roadshow in February 2018. The event is FREE and open to all students and researchers studying the sciences.
The program will feature lectures from world-class researchers, including Prof. Kirk Schanze, Editor-in-Chief of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, and Prof. Vincent Rotello, Editor-in-Chief of Bioconjugate Chemistry. Don’t miss 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.
Take advantage of the opportunity to share your research during the ACS on Campus poster presentation session. Identify at registration if you’ll be presenting a poster. The two best posters will receive a prize of $100 USD.
The event is free but registration is required. Lunch will be provided to all registered attendees.

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. He has authored or co-authored 300 peer-reviewed articles on basic and applied research topics, with a primary focus on organic and organometallic materials chemistry, and is named in 20 patents or disclosures.
Vincent Rotello, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, Bioconjugate Chemistry
Professor of Chemistry and a University Distinguished Professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst
Vincent Rotello is the Charles A. Goessmann Professor of Chemistry and a University Distinguished Professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He received his B.S. in Chemistry in 1985 from Illinois Institute of Technology, and his Ph. D. in 1990 in Chemistry from Yale University. He was an NSF postdoctoral fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1990-1993, and joined the faculty at the University of Massachusetts in 1993. He has been the recipient of the NSF CAREER and Cottrell Scholar awards, as well as the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar, the Sloan Fellowships. More recently, he has received the Langmuir Lectureship (2010), the Transformational Research and Excellence in Education Award presented by Research Corporation (2016) and the Bioorganic Lectureship of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) (2016). He is a Fellow of both the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and of the Royal Society of Chemistry (U.K.). He is also recognized in 2014 and 2015 by Thomson Reuters as one of the “Most Influential Scientific Minds”. He is currently the Editor in Chief of Bioconjugate Chemistry, and is on the Editorial Board of 14 other journals. His research program focuses on using synthetic organic chemistry to engineer the interface between the synthetic and biological worlds, and spans the areas of devices, polymers, and nanotechnology/bionanotechnology, with over 475 peer-reviewed papers published to date. He is actively involved in the area of bionanotechnology, and his research includes programs in delivery, imaging, diagnostics and nanotoxicology.
