Associate Professor of Chemistry Ian Rosenstein and Julia Ganson ’21 recently attended the 46th National Organic Chemistry Symposium at Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind. Rosenstein said that more than 600 chemists attended the conference, which is the largest meeting in the U.S. devoted exclusively to organic chemistry.
Ganson presented a poster titled “The Development of Radical Reactions Mediated by an Organic Photoredox Catalyst.” Eddie Allen ’20 and Caitlin Topi ’18 were co-authors on the poster.
In addition to Rosenstein and Ganson, Hamilton was represented at the conference by three alumni. Kevin Brown ’02, associate professor of chemistry at Indiana University, served as a local co-coordinator for the meeting. He gave a welcome address and introduction to Bloomington to open the conference.
Lydia Rono ’11, a medicinal chemist at Bristol-Myers Squibb, was a panelist for a session on careers in the pharmaceutical industry. Daniel Griffith ’07, assistant professor of chemistry at Lafayette College, gave a poster presentation.
Ganson’s attendance at the conference was funded in part by an Undergraduate Travel Award from the Division of Organic Chemistry of the American Chemical Society.
