2018 UIC Chemistry Research Symposium

The UIC Chemistry Research Symposium is a yearly event open to post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate students who want to showcase their research. Students and faculty from all divisions across the Chemistry department will get a chance to interact and find out what lies at the frontiers of UIC Chemistry Research.

In order to be considered for an oral presentation, abstracts are judged anonymously by a panel of faculty members in the same or similar field of study/division.

This year’s UIC CRS will be held on

October 26th, 2016 at 1pm – 5pm at the UIC Student Center East
