Annual Symposium – Award winners!

March 15, 2021

The 2021 Chemistry Research Symposium, highlighted research performed at Clemson by our students and at other institutions by our honored guests. All of these students have worked very hard to highlight the variety and importance of research being done in chemistry. As Dr. Pennington mentioned, science isn’t hard work for the curious, but it does provide education and training for a wide variety of careers and vocations, and chemistry, as the central science, provides a jumping-off point to a world full of opportunities. Celebrating their curiosity and success, this year’s winners for best posters presented at the 5th Annual Chemistry Symposium are:

First Place – Graduate Poster: Paola Benavides
