Radiochemistry a highlight of remaining fall chemistry seminars in Portland area

Portland-area university chemistry departments are winding down their fall series of seminars, but there are still opportunities to catch a couple more through December.

Portland State University’s chemistry department will host Jeanne Link, a professor of diagnostic radiology and director of the Radiochemistry Research Center at Oregon Health and Science University, Nov. 20. Her topic is “Radiosynthesis of short-lived radiochemicals and radiopharmaceuticals challenges for organic synthesis.”

PSU seminars are held from 3:15 to 4:20 p.m. Fridays in Room 107, Science Building 1, 1025 S.W. Mill St. They are free and open to the public.

Following Link will be a seminar by Laurel Schafer, a chemistry professor from the University of British Columbia, on Dec. 4. Her topic is to be announced.
