The acclaimed symposium series began in 2006 at McGill University, continued in 2008 at Yale University and will now be at the University of Massachusetts at Boston in 2010. This year's program has confirmed keynote speakers Dr. Roger A. Sheldon, Professor Emeritus, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, and Dr. John C. Warner, President and CTO of Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry, USA. Dr. Paul T. Anastas, Assistant Administrator of the Office of R&D of the US EPA is also currently scheduled to speak at our networking reception. Other speakers represent industry and academia worldwide including Lonza, DSM, Pfizer, Bend Research Inc., Clinton Foundation, Howard University, University of Minnesota, McGill University, Syncore Laboratories, Novasep, Mettler Toledo, Rockwell Automation, and many more. Focus areas for the symposium include green organic synthesis, biotransformations and biological drug processing, enabling technology platforms, and green chemistry for neglected diseases.
Students Receive Free Registration - Interested students must submit a letter of intent with a CV to info@GuidingGreen.com. Students will be accepted on a rolling basis as space permits. Registration confirmation will be sent as the student is accepted. All travel expenses are the responsibility of the student.
Poster Abstracts - Poster abstracts are welcome from all, and strongly encouraged from students and young faculty. Information on submission can be found at https://guidinggreen.com/Pharm_FineChem.html.
Have you heard of speed dating? Speed mentoring is based on the same concept. The symposium will include a 1 hour session (not overlapping the speaker program) for a semi-formal networking event where students and young faculty can meet career professionals (in industry, academia, government or other professions) to initiate a potential mentoring relationship. To participate in this free activity, each participant must commit to one follow-up teleconference or in person meeting with their respective mentor/mentoree after the symposium. The intention of this event is to improve the symposium experience for students and young professionals, while potentially creating a mentoring relationship for the future. Registration for this free event may be done during the symposium registration process. Space is limited.
