Network and learn about the latest research from chemical professionals across the Northeastern Region! The sessions will cover a broad range of topics from aerogels to forensic science to peptide chemistry and many others. With a variety of parallel tracks there will be a session for everyone. NERM will feature distinguished speakers including Nobel Laureate Joachim Frank and the winner of the 2019 Buck-Whitney award. Students are strongly encouraged to participate and NERM will include leadership training programs, a poster session and opportunities to present a talk. There will be an Exposition floor holding up to 50 exhibits to talk to vendors about their latest products and connect with companies and universities for partnerships. NERM 2019 is hosted by the Eastern New York chapter, which comprises a healthy mix of academic, government and industrial members across all disciplines of chemistry.
