Highlands in Chemistry

The Highlands in Chemistry seminar series is a weekly event hosted by the Department of Chemistry designed to share research ideas within the chemistry community and beyond. The series was started in 1966 by Alan Clifford, who was appointed chemistry department head the same year. Speakers from all over the world involved in academia, industry, and government come to share their research with colleagues and students.

Highlands seminars take place on Fridays throughout the semester at 2:30 p.m. in Hahn Hall North 140.
