IMPACT Lecture Series

Impact Logo

The IMPACT Lecture Series is a student-led invited lecture program attracting notable speakers from diverse areas of chemistry and biochemistry. Graduate students manage the program, from speaker selection and invitation, all the way through hosting the speaker and coordinating the details of the speaker's visit. This series, funded by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, allows students a unique opportunity both to invite speakers whose research is of particular interest and to have more time with a speaker to discuss research or professional development.
