Chemistry Department Seminars

Seminars are usually held on Friday afternoon in room SL 130 at 3:15 pm unless otherwise noted.

Refreshments are provided 15 minutes prior to the seminar in CB275, except during Summer Quarter.

The department strives to offer a diverse and vibrant seminar program. Each year leading researchers from outside the department, as well as faculty and graduate students from Western, present and discuss their cutting-edge research. This is an excellent opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to actively participate in the scientific community. In addition, many outside seminar speakers are recruiting graduate students for their respective programs and are eager to discuss their program. All are welcome and encouraged to attend!  

Current Seminar Schedule

Due to COVID-19, the Chemistry Department will not be hosting seminars during Spring or Summer quarters. We hope to resume regular seminars in Fall quarter of 2020. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this difficult time.
