SYENSQO Seminar Series

Spring 2024 SYENSQO Seminar Series

Each Fall and Spring semester, the Macromolecules Innovation Institute (MII) hosts a series of seminars from world-renowned leaders in the field of macromolecular science and engineering. The seminars are open to all VT faculty and students, with a special emphasis on engagement with the Macromolecular Science and Engineering (MACR) degree program. Invited speakers represent a hugely diverse range of polymer research backgrounds, and come from industry, academia, and government laboratories. The objective of the seminar series is to share fundamental and applied knowledge between Virginia Tech’s globally recognized polymer research community and world-class experts in relevant fields. The series is made possible by the generous support of Solvay Materials.

All seminars are held in Kelly Hall 310 and start at 11:15 a.m. on the scheduled day! We look forward to another exciting semester of seminars.
