Dreyfus Foundation Teacher-Scholar Symposium, 2010

A Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Symposium, “Research Frontiers in the Chemical Sciences”, was held in New York City on October 29, 2010. The 2009 and 2010 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars and the 2008 and 2009 Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars presented posters of their research. Bracketing the poster sessions were talks by four senior Teacher-Scholars (shown above) representing different research areas of chemistry. The one-day symposium highlighted many exciting areas in the chemical sciences and promoted a network among many of the nation’s leading young research chemists.
