The NORM 2018 Eminent Scientist Lecturer is Dr. Mas Subramanian, the Oregon State University Milton Harris Endowed Chair and Professor of Materials Chemistry. Professor Subramanian’s research focuses on designing new inorganic solid state functional materials for emerging applications in electronics, energy conversion and environment. He is internationally recognized for several scientific breakthrough discoveries in the field of superconductors, dielectrics, magnetism, catalysis, thermoelectrics and inorganic pigments. These discoveries were highlighted in several leading popular science magazines/newspapers all over the world including The New York Times, Time, National Geographic Magazine, Smithsonian, Discover and C&EN News. His talk is entitled: “YInMn Blues: An amazing Chemistry Discovery that Startled the Science and Art World” and will be given Monday, June 25th as part of the Undergraduate Program at NORM 2018.

The William R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) is a world-class biological and environmental molecular science user facility with a vision to lead the scientific community in gaining a predictive understanding of molecular processes that control the flux of materials underpinning biological and ecosystem functions.
Please join us for a sunset hike up Badger Mountain, hosted by the Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) and the Women Chemists Committee (WCC). The hike will be guided by members of the YCC, WCC and other volunteers. At the top of Badger Mountain, local experts will give a brief talk on the interesting geology of the area.
The theme of this year’s luncheon is Transitions, Life and Chemistry. This lunch will facilitate networking and discussion between attendees about the changes and uncertainty they have dealt with in their lives and careers as chemists.
