The Life Technologies Institute had the pleasure to welcome Prof. Jennifer A. Field from Oregon State University, USA, for her conference about Advancing Environmental Forensics of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances on May 31st.
The conference was part of the Lectureship Award 2022 organized by the Swiss Chemical Society and took place on our Campus Energypolis in Sion.
The SCS Lectureships are awarded to world-class distinguished scientists and it is organized under the patronage of the Swiss Chemical Society. Over a week, the lecturers give five to six presentations and discuss with colleagues at five to six diﬀerent Swiss research institutions. The selection of the lecturers follows a bottom-up approach where PIs from all Swiss research institutions can propose candidates. The program covers all areas of chemistry. The choice among the proposed lectureships is made by the board of the Division of Fundamental Research (DFR).
The Swiss Chemical Society (SCS) represents chemists and scientists from chemistry related fields in national and international organizations. The society supports the exchange of scientific and technical know-how and offers corresponding networking possibilities to the academic and industrial community. It has members in more than 50 countries and represents about 2700 individual and institutional members.
