THE BAY AREA
CONNECTING LOCAL INDUSTRY + ACADEMIA
JOIN US FOR THE 3RD 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, biological, and computational chemistry. The one-day symposium will feature keynote addresses given by leading professors and industrial chemists from the Bay Area and showcase research talks from graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and industry researchers. A poster session will also take place with presentations representing research conducted in both academic and industry laboratories. This symposium, co-chaired by Professor Jared Shaw of UC Davis, and Lauren Holder of Novartis, promises to be an exciting and influential community building event for synthetic, medicinal, and computational chemists across the Bay Area.
What previous 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!"
