Shanghai International Chemical Sciences Chapter was established in 2011 by a group of oversea returnees from US. The group aims to serve the community by building a chemistry network in Shanghai and Yantze river delta (Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui Province). The primary goals for the chapter are connecting the people, education and making chemistry fun. The chapter is featured with strong industry connection from both pharmaceutical R&D centers and CROs.
