SPRING SYMPOSIUM | KEYNOTE SPEAKERS | SYMPOSIUM ARCHIVES | SPEAKER INFORMATION

 

 Each year we feature a keynote speaker for the Department’s annual Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium. We are honored to have had speakers who are alumni of the department and are willing to come back and share with our students their experiences of “life after JMU”. We thank each of these speakers and look forward to future alumni participation in the Department of Chemistry Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium.
