ACS National Meeting Fall 2020 banner: Moving Chemistry from Bench to Market. August 16-20, San Francisco.

Theme Statement:

Chemists improve lives globally every day by transforming research at the bench to commercial innovations.

Join us at Moving Chemistry from Bench to Market and advance your impact on translating research to products and services that only chemistry and chemists can provide!

Moving Chemistry from Bench to Market offers connections, skills, insights and access that chemistry professionals cannot get anywhere else!

  • Meet like-minded innovators who have taken ideas and products from bench to market;
  • Expand your view of what chemistry can contribute to solving global problems and how that happens;
  • Connect your research on the bench to market continuum to create opportunities, products and impact.

See firsthand how multidisciplinary, cross-functional teams and partnerships amplify the impact of research.
