Join us for NY Systems Chemistry symposium on December 13th 2018 at the Advanced Science Research Center!

Systems Chemistry involves networks of reacting interacting molecules. Within such mixtures, links between chemical properties and observed behavior are no longer obvious and become rich in functionality, as exemplified by ecosystems and living systems.

This free, one-day symposium will bring together a diverse group of scientists who study chemical systems to better understand nature, and ultimately, to produce materials and products with new functions that cannot be achieved using traditional chemistry approaches.

We welcome researchers and students to join us for talks, networking, and poster presentations.
