ACS Professors, postdocs, and staff applauded the Jiler sessions and spirit.
I get to tell people about (ACS Professor) Luis Parada's talk as an example of HOPE.
I get to tell my colleagues about (ACS Professor) Jennifer Grandis' amazing and really sad talk (on gender equity in science).
And I get to tell my colleagues here about the ACS's efforts to support the postdocs during the pandemic.
Finally, I get to tell my lab about ideas for experiments that came out of my discussion with (ACS Professor) Dick McIntosh.”
