The Spencer Symposium provides our students with an opportunity to learn about recent advances in chemistry and medicine.
Jan 22, 2018
The eighth annual Spencer Symposium at Florida Southern College, highlighting research advances in chemistry and medicine, will be held on Friday, Jan. 26, in the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel on the FSC campus. The series of four lectures, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., are free and open to the public.
This year’s symposium will include the following lecturers and their topics:
Dr. Kristin Karbstein, an associate professor in the Department of Integrative Structural and Computational Biology at The Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter, will discuss her lab’s research on how ribosomes are assembled within cells, and how this assembly is both regulated and quality controlled.
Dr. Francisco Fernandez-Lima, an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Florida International University, will lecture on research using trapped ion mobility spectrometry coupled with mass spectrometry to analyze complex chemical mixtures and biological structures.
“The Spencer Symposium provides our students with an opportunity to learn about recent advances in chemistry and medicine,” said Dr. Carmen Gauthier, Jessie Ball duPont Professor of Chemistry and chair of the Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Physics. “We are excited to have the opportunity to bring a diverse group of scientists to share their passion for research and medicine.”
Symposium lectures will be free and open to the public via Zoom.
“MCAT: King of the Curve” subscriptions are available to iPhone and iPad users.
