Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Symposium: October 28, 2016

The fourth biennial symposium for recent Camille and Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars will be held at the New York Academy of Sciences on Friday, October 28. Over 40 of the most recent Teacher-Scholars will present posters of their research, bracketed by talks from four senior Teacher-Scholars. This year’s speakers are: Kristi Anseth, University of Colorado Boulder; Anthony Bishop, Amherst College; Steven Buchwald, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and Marsha Lester, University of Pennsylvania. This year will introduce a special session on communicating chemistry. The invited Teacher-Scholars will each have produced a 2-3 minute video about their research and its potential importance, with much of the content to be aimed at non-scientists. Noted videographers Gino Del Guercio and Stephen Lyons will select segments from these videos and present them with commentary at the symposium. The videos produced by the Teacher-Scholars are posted on the Foundation website. The talks will stream live at http://www.dreyfus.org/contact/TSS.shtml …
