22nd Annual Poster Session
Every year the Department of Chemistry hosts a Poster Session to showcase research of their PhD students, faculty, research groups, postdocs and staff. Over seventy posters are submitted and judged by a group of highly respected industry members and academic scholars.
The Department of Chemistry is grateful to our industry sponsors, BASF, The Eastman Chemical Company, Sealed Air, The Comparative Medicine Institute at NC State, Dr. David Muddiman and the Wolfpack Interdisciplinary Research Group.
The event is also an opportunity for recruits, current students, faculty and staff to network and develop their professional relationships. Judges will present awards and recognition of the submittals.
For those who are submitting posters to the 2021 virtual event, please refer to instructions on the Virbela Overview link below.
