Each month, and often more frequently, a chemist from industry or academia presents a seminar on his or her research as part of our Departmental Seminar Series. Ph.D. candidates who are close to graduation also present seminars on their work in Departmental or Divisional Seminars, and newer graduate students present within their division. For a list of upcoming seminars please see below.
