Please consider submitting an abstract for the symposium, "Making Chemistry Greener and Safer," which will be held June 11-13 in Reston, Virginia as part of the 2019 Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference/International Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry.


Both green chemistry and chemical safety have undergone amazing transformations recently. Horizons are expanding, new tools have emerged, new connections are being made, and new questions are being asked. What's missing from environmental assessments? Can green chemistry be safer? What can chemical safety learn from green chemistry? This symposium will explore these developments to improve both understanding and practice. Please be part of this discussion! Case studies are welcome.


Submit your abstract no later than January 14th via this link:

Lee Cronin

Prof. Lee Cronin FRSE, FRSC, Regius Chair of Chemistry,  University of Glasgow


Leroy (Lee) Cronin FRSE was appointed Regius Professor of Chemistry in Glasgow in 2013 after being a professor and reader in Glasgow since 2002. Between 2000-2002 he was a lecturer at the University of Birmingham. Lee was an Alexander von Humboldt research fellow at the University of Bielefeld. From 1997-1999, he was a research fellow at the University of Edinburgh.


In 1997, Lee obtained a Ph.D. in Bio-Inorganic Chemistry at the University of York. In 1994, he obtained a BSc. in Chemistry, First Class, University of York. Among Lee's many recognitions are a 2015 RSC Tilden Prize, a 2013 BP/RSE Hutton Prize, a 2012 RSC Corday-Morgan prize and election to the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2009.


His research has three main aims: (a) the construction of an artificial life form / work out how inorganic chemistry transitioned to biology / searching for new life forms; (b) the digitization of chemistry; and (c) the use of artificial intelligence in chemistry including the construction of 'wet' chemical computers.
