The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization in conjunction with the IUPAC have designated 2011 the International Year of Chemistry (IYC 2011). In recognition of this designation, WCMC in Qatar is organizing a chemistry-themed presentation competition, open to all students taking chemistry.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization in conjunction with the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry have designated 2011 the International Year of Chemistry (IYC 2011).  In recognition of this designation, Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar is organizing a chemistry-themed presentation competition, open to all undergraduate students taking chemistry.

 

The IYC Symposium for Chemistry in Medicine will be held in 26th November 2011. The focus of the Symposium presentations will be “the role of chemistry in medicine.”  Through their participation in this event, students will learn of the profound benefits that chemistry provides humankind, while also gaining appreciation for the importance of informative speech and the elegance of the spoken word.

 

Students are required to submit a 200-250 word abstract, describing the premise of their talk. WCMC-Q faculty will evaluate student abstracts. A session will be provided at WCMCQ on presentation skills for those with successful abstract submissions.

 

The top proposals will then be invited to provide a ten-minute oral presentation based on their proposal. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place.

 

Please encourage your students to submit abstracts and to thus explore the fascinating connectivity between chemistry and medicine. 

 

This is an exciting opportunity for students to be able to present at an official event at WCMC-Q.
