GTCA Symposium at ACS Spring meeting

Michael Morris, the Chair Elect of the Gay and Transgender Chemists and Allies (GTCA) of the Division of Professional Relations (PROF) is planning a symposium at the New Orleans meeting. Michael would be ecstatic to have CMA graduate student/postdoc members to participate in the symposium.

Contributed talks from graduate and postdoctoral students are sought for the LGBTQ+ Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Scholar Research Symposium at the Spring ACS Meeting in New Orleans. The symposium will consist of scientific talks by LGBTQ+ graduate students and postdoctoral scholars and will conclude with a panel discussion on issues that affect LGBTQ+ students and postdocs. Partial reimbursement of registration/travel expenses will be provided to the graduate student and postdoctoral scholar speakers. The symposium is sponsored by the Division of Professional Relations (PROF) and is nominally cosponsored by CMA.
