ACS on Campus is proud to host its program in conjunction with the 21st CRSI National Symposium in Chemistry, July 14-16. On Wednesday, July 12, join us at the University of Hyderabad for presentations on scholarly publishing and lectures on the latest innovations in science. Featured speakers include Prof. George Schatz, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Physical Chemistry; Prof. Deqing Zhang, Editor of ACS Omega; and Prof. Brian S. Blagg, Associate Editor of Journal of Medicinal Chemistry.
The event is FREE and open to all students and researchers studying the sciences. Registration is open! Please check back soon for the full agenda.
Dr. George C. Schatz
Dr. George C. Schatz is the Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry and of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Northwestern University. Schatz has published three books and over 760 papers. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences, and he has been Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Physical Chemistry since 2005. Schatz is a theoretician who studies the optical, structural and thermal properties of nanomaterials, including plasmonic nanoparticles, DNA and peptide nanostructures, and carbon-based materials, with applications in chemical and biological sensing, electronic and biological materials, high performance fibers, and solar energy.
Deqing Zhang, PhD
Professor Deqing Zhang, Ph.D., is the Director of the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. Trained as an organic chemist, Professor Zhang’s research focuses on organic functional materials involving synthesis of organic functional molecules, spectroscopic studies, characterizations of self-assembly structures and optoelectronic properties, as well as applications for chemo-/biosensing and imaging.

Leaders in the field
Heather L. Tierney, Ph.D.
Managing Editor, ACS Nano & Nano Letters
Heather received her Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Assumption College in Worcester, MA. She then proceeded to complete a Ph. D. in Chemistry at Tufts University, where she used a combination of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and density functional theory (DFT) to study the surface chemistry of a variety of systems including bimetallic alloys, molecular self-assembly, and single-molecule rotors. Heather joined the Publications Division of the American Chemical Society in 2010 as the Managing Editor for ACS Nano and Nano Letters.
