RSC Desktop Seminar - Hosted by RSC Chemical Biology

21 May 2020 12:00-14:45, United States

RSC Desktop Seminars are a new initiative from the Royal Society of Chemistry to bring cutting-edge research directly to you! Now, more than ever, there is a crucial need for sharing research, and each seminar series will feature a range of speakers on a related topic. Each session will highlight a single speaker, with the opportunity for a small group of select early career researchers to engage with the speaker more informally in a separate session.
Join Jennifer Heemstra, PhD, Associate Professor of Chemistry at Emory University and Editorial Board Member of RSC Chemical Biology, as she kicks off our Inaugural RSC Desktop Seminar Series with her presentation

"Interrogating Enzymatic Reactions using Nucleic Acid Molecular Recognition and Assembly."

This 1 hour 15 minute seminar will allow researchers of all professional levels to connect and share ideas and ask questions.

Each seminar will be followed by the opportunity for select Early Career Researchers to connect with Jennifer in one of two 30-minute small-group question & answer sessions. Space is extremely limited, so be sure to register today!
