Networking Event***Update: Many thanks to all of you who attended this event! We were happy to see so many alumni, professional colleagues, and both graduate and undergraduate students. A video of the event is available for those who missed it (the talks start at 3:56).

The Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering (ChBE) at CU will be hosting a spring ChBE Research Symposium and Networking Event on Thursday, March 13 from 5:30pm - 8:00pm in the Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnoogy Building (JSCBB). 

The focus of the Symposium will be Materials.

The Networking Event is open to those professionals and students interested in all aspects of chemical engineering and chemical & biological engineering. 

The Symposium will consist of four 20-minute faculty talks from 5:30-6:50pm, as detailed below. Faculty speakers will include Chris Bowman, Arthi Jayaraman, Charles Musgrave, and Dan Schwartz.

5:30-5:50  Distinguished Professor Chris Bowman
Click Chemistry for Making Polymers:  Chemistry so easy a chemical engineer can do it!

Polymer Trajectories

The large cluster depicts experimental single-molecule trajectories of polymer chains diffusing at a solid-liquid interface.  In the small ring are computer simulated, normal random walks that have the same average mobility as the experimental trajectories.

5:50-6:10  Patten Assistant Professor Arthi Jayaraman
Computational Design of Macromolecular Materials

6:10-6:30  Professor and Associate Chair Charles Musgrave
Materials for Energy Conversion

6:30-6:50  Department Chair and Alfred T. and Betty E. Look Professor Dan Schwartz
Exploring Surfaces One Molecule at a Time

6:50-8:00  Networking Event and Refreshments

Talks will take place in JSCBB A115, while the networking event will be in the adjoining Café/Gallery area.  Free parking is available in the lots on the west side of the building.

This event is open to alumni, professionals, graduate researchers, and undergraduates.
