Distinguished Women in Science Series

As part of the Distinguished Women in Science speaker series, the Chemistry Department welcomes at least one eminent female chemist per semester to share both her research and experiences with the larger Brown community. Each speaker is invited to present a Friday colloquium and lunch several with graduate schools, during which she is encouraged to discuss her path to success. Speakers are both invited and hosted by graduate students. Funding for this program is generously provided by the Brown Chemistry Department and the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity.

Upcoming speakers include:

April 13, 2018: Prof. Suzanne Walker, Professor of Microbiology and Immunobiology, Harvard University
October 5, 2018: Prof. Marsha Lester, Edmund J. Kahn Distinguished Professor, University of Pennsylvania & Editor, Journal of Chemical Physics

The series piloted in Fall 2017 with a seminar by Prof. Catherine Drennan of MIT.
