The Indiana local section is partnering with IU for their bicentennial Beyond Borders Event. The event will be held on April 9-10, 2021 and will draw on Indiana University’s over 200 years of leadership in higher education and research by bringing the state’s academic associations together virtually. The symposium will serve as the host of annual meetings for 13 state academic organizations and will provide an online venue for scholars, researchers, students, and professionals to discuss ideas, collaborate, and share their work with others.

The section is hosting three presentation sessions:

2021 ACS Indiana Selected Graduate Student Symposium (Selected Oral Presentations) April 9, 10:30am-12:30 pm
IU200 Multidisciplinary Poster Presentations April 9, 5 – 6:30 pm
Think Like a Molecule Poster Session April 10, 10:30 am-3:00 pm

These sessions will be live presentations and feature questions and answer sessions. The Think Like a Molecule presentations will be followed by our keynote address from Haley Keith, Co-founder and CEO of MITO Materials, and concluded with the awards ceremony.
