JOIN US FOR THE 2ND ANNUAL BACS
The Bay Area Chemistry Symposium provides a unique opportunity to connect local students and academics with scientists from the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, covering themes of synthesis and design in medicinal, process, and computational chemistry. The one-day symposium will feature keynote addresses given by Gilead, Genentech, and Novartis as well as leading professors from the area and showcase research talks from graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and industrial chemists. A poster session will also take place with presentations representing research conducted in both academic and industry laboratories. This symposium, co-chaired by Richmond Sarpong, Professor of Chemistry at UC Berkeley, and Kevin Allan, Process Chemist at Gilead Sciences, promises to be an exciting and influential community building event for synthetic, medicinal, and computational chemists across the Bay Area.
What last year's attendees had to say:
"The speakers were great, the organization was great, the entire event was a great success!"
"I enjoyed the first BACS very much. This is probably the best local ACS event I ever attended."
"Thank you so much for organizing the BACS. I had a really amazing time and really enjoyed the event. I really hope to be there next year!"
The Bay Area Chemistry Symposium will feature 30 minute keynote talks from leading scientists in both academia in industry. We'll also hear from more industry scientists, students, and post-docs in a series of short talks highlighting the exciting science happening in the Bay Area.
The BACS is made possible by generous support from our local industry sponsors.
