The Medicinal Chemistry Department seminars involve a mix of prominent researchers from both academic institutions and industry presenting research at the forefront of Medicinal Chemistry (broadly defined). They also include presentations from our own students (dissertation defenses & research seminars). The seminars are held on Thursday, weekly at 4:00pm in room 2548 of the 1100 North University Building (NUB - formerly known as CC Little) unless otherwise stated. Select a semester from the drop-down menu below to browse the schedule.
