Demystifying Scientific Collaborations – ACS Spring Meeting
Tuesday, March 22, 2022
San Diego, CA
ACS on Campus is attending the ACS Spring Meeting & Expo in San Diego, CA! Join us in the ACS booth theater on Tuesday, March 22nd for a special presentation, “Demystifying Scientific Collaborations.”
It’s easy to see that finding a great partner can supercharge your research, science outreach activity, or other initiative, but…how do you get started? And keep it going strong?
Join Prof. Hosea M. Nelson, Senior Editor, ACS Central Science, and one of his favorite collaborators, Prof. Yi Tang of UCLA, as they take you inside their partnership and share their best advice for creating your own collaborations.
Take a break at ACS National Meeting and join us for a professional development session in the ACS booth!
Registration encouraged, but not required. Let us know you are attending this interactive session and you will be entered to win ACSoC swag!
Hosea M. Nelson, Ph.D.
Senior Editor, ACS Central Science
Professor of Chemistry, California Institute of Technology
Prof. Nelson earned a B.S. in Chemistry from University of California at Berkeley in 2005 and a Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology in 2013. After postdoctoral training at University of California at Berkeley, Prof. Nelson joined the UCLA faculty in 2015. In 2021 he joined Caltech’s Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Prof. Nelson’s research program is focused on the development of enabling technologies for chemical synthesis. His group focuses on this goal through two primary avenues of research. 1) In their structural chemistry subgroup they develop new electron microscopy techniques that enable the characterization of complex molecules, often unattainable using traditional methods. 2) Their synthetic subgroup focuses on the development of new chemical reactions that will enable the efficient and rapid synthesis of bioactive compounds.
Yi Tang, Ph.D.
Professor of Organic Chemistry, University of California, Los Angeles
Yi Tang received his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and Material Science from Penn State University. He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from California Institute of Technology under the guidance of Prof. David A. Tirrell. After NIH postdoctoral training in Chemical Biology from Prof. Chaitan Khosla at Stanford University, he started his independent career at University of California Los Angeles in 2004. He is currently the Chancellor Professor at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UCLA, and holds joint appointments in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry; and Department of Bioengineering. His recent awards include the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Allan P. Colburn Award (2009), the American Chemical Society (ACS) Biochemical Technology Division (BIOT) Young Investigator Award (2011), the ACS Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award (2012), the EPA Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award (2012), NIH DP1 Director Pioneer Award (2012), the ACS Eli Lilly Award in Biological Chemistry (2014) and the Society of Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology Charles Thom Award (2019).
