Sometimes we benefit from taking a moment to remember where we started…It is easy to forget the leaps (of faith) and commitment to ideas others took before us to get where we are today. Next week Dr. Thomas Tritton, President of Chemical Heritage Foundation will discuss the last three centuries of chemistry, highlighting ten key discoveries that led to the formation of modern day chemistry.
This event is one of a series designed to engage business professionals, as well as already established and rising chemistry professionals from Duke, University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University to discuss topics relevant to the field. The event is free. To attend, please click here to register.
The Story of Chemistry
Tuesday, April 3, 2012
RTP Headquarters, 12 Davis Drive
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm (Reception to follow)
Chemistry is also extremely important to the Research Triangle Park…and the workforce that supports it. RTP’s own story was founded over 50 years ago on the fundamental belief that talent derived from Duke, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University would attract and support R&D based companies. Today more than 170 companies are located in the Park which has become a key economic driver for the region. So clearly chemistry has been and continues to be elemental to R&D…and the RTP.
Hope you can join us!
