ChemEd Summit Envisions Interdisciplinary Future for Chemistry Students

On March 8, NC State’s Integrative Sciences Initiative, in partnership with the Departments of Chemistry and Molecular and Structural Biochemistry and under the auspices of the College of Sciences Dean’s Faculty Fellow Program, hosted a one-day event that brought together members from the industrial, academic and state and federal chemical sciences communities. The result: a giant leap forward in how the Pack is transforming undergraduate chemical sciences education for the next-generation workforce.
