  • Friday, July 19, 2019 - 3:00pm, Luther College, Decorah, IA
    Keynote: Dr. Catherine J. Murphy, Larry R. Faulkner Endowed Chair in Chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

    The Midwest Retreat for Diversity in Chemistry (MWRDC) is modeled after the successful Puget Sound Women Chemists Retreat in 2015 and it is organized by a collaborative team of motivated graduate students and postdocs.

    The event will be held July 19-21, 2019 at Luther College in Decorah, IA

    The goal of the Midwest Retreat for Diversity in Chemistry is the retention of underrepresented groups in chemistry careers and their advancement into leadership roles. We aim to teach graduate and post-doctoral chemists a positive and proactive approach to their careers. Specifically, we will connect attendees to a close-knit network of colleagues and mentors, teach strategies for career success, and increase awareness about factors that influence their career paths.

  • Friday, August 16, 2019 - 9:00am, Hach Hall Atrium
    Nano@IAState
    Ying Diao (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign) and Javier Vela (Iowa State) will give 45 minute plenary lectures

    Nano@IAState is a single day meeting to bring together ISU, Ames Lab and industrial scientists and researchers working on the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials and applications of nanoscience.

    The second annual meeting will be held on Friday August 16, 2019 in the Hach Hall Atrium. The meeting will consist of oral presentations and a poster session. The meeting is open to ISU and Ames Lab graduate and undergraduate students, staff and faculty, and members of local industry.

    Invited oral presentations will be given by ISU/Ames lab researchers and members of local industry. Contributed oral presentations from ISU graduate students/post-docs will be 15 minutes in duration. The poster session is open to all participants.
