March Dinner Meeting Recap

Posted by David Gottfried on March 30, 2017 at 10:10 AM

Dr. Amanda Stockton’s talk on small sample microfluidics was out of this universe! The talk was truly intriguing with many great takeaways. One of our members commented that they enjoyed fluorescence detection being at the forefront as mass spectrometry is not an ubiquitous system for all species, particularly those that do not ionize. Dr. Stockton stressed that the duality of both is needed to ascertain compound and life in the universe. At the end of her talk, Dr. Stockton was asked what can the next generation of STEM students do to end up at NASA. She wisely responded, “Be ready to learn new things because you will never get the opportunity to do the same thing [at NASA].” How applicable to not only the life of a scientist but also to life itself!

2017 Theme

The Georgia Local Section of the ACS has selected the theme, A Year of Giving: Catalyzing Chemistry via Community, for its 2017 programming. A Year of Giving refers to the outreach and education of technical and non-technical audiences about the importance of chemists and chemistry via the coupling of commonplace and technical chemistry ideas. We hope you will join and support us in this critical mission.
