Schedule of Events 

We have a special program this year with a keynote speech by David MacMillan, co-recipient of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. The science behind asymmetric organocatalysis, for which MacMillan won the Nobel, has been widely shared. What is not as well known is what it’s like to be a Nobel Laureate, how it changed his life as a scientist, and some of the adventures of his first year as a laureate.

Please join us for the keynote followed by a Q&A panel featuring three of our esteemed professors, a chem demo by members of PrincetonWIC, Graduate Student Awards, and reception. The program begins in Taylor Auditorium:

2:30pm   David MacMillan: “A Nobel Year: The Frenetic Life of a Nobel Laureate”

3pm         Q&A Panel with Professors MacMillan, Sorensen, and Schoop

3:20pm   PrincetonWIC chemistry demo (formerly the Alyea Demo)

3:30pm   Graduate Student Awards with Professor Sorensen
