Powell Seminar Series

The Department of Chemistry hosts the annual Powell Seminar Series as part of the academic course, Chemistry Seminar, for juniors. Presentations are given by current students, outside speakers and students in graduate programs. Offering valuable information on research, graduate school, and the chemical industry, presentations are held each Friday at 1:30pm during the Fall 2021 and the Spring 2022.

We can celebrate the success of UR in dealing with the COVID-19 challenges by now being allowed to return to meeting in-person for the Chemistry Seminar Series. For our Introductory Seminar Meeting, Visiting (guest scientist) Seminar Speakers, and the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Workshop, we will meet promptly at 1:30pm on Fridays in the Gottwald Auditorium (A001); for all Senior Student Seminars, we will meet in C114.

Please register with Pat Coleman by emailing pcoleman@richmond.edu.
Students who are not registered for the course are still welcome to attend the presentations. This year's seminar series is coordinated by Dr. Raymond Dominey.
