ACS: Tianjin International Symposium Celebrates Accomplishments in Chemistry

 Global

Recently Tianjin University in China hosted a 4-day symposium featuring a global line-up of speakers who presented exciting advances in chemistry and related fields. The event was organized by the Tianjin University Health Sciences Division, in partnership with Science/AAAS and Nature Research. ACS Publications and the Journal of the American Chemical Society(JACS), along with other scientific publishing and industrial R&D organizations, sponsored the symposium. 

The event opened with the Peiyang Nobel Symposium on February 23, 2017, where five recent Nobel laureates, including 2016 Chemistry Nobelist Sir J. Fraser Stoddart, gave lectures describing their careers in science. Professor Stoddart also met with selected high school students, and he shared how his life has changed after receiving the Nobel Prize, for example with more broad appreciation outside the scientific community. The other participating laureates were K. Barry Sharpless (Chemistry, 2001), Robert H. Grubbs (Chemistry, 2006), Ada E. Yonath (Chemistry, 2009), and Bruce A. Beutler(Physiology/Medicine, 2011). 

The program continued with the International Symposium on Visionary Trends in Molecular Science (February 24-26), featuring 30 top international scientists, including 13 Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Two JACS Associate Editors and two members of the JACS Editorial Advisory Board were speakers at the symposium.
