Empowering Global Scientific Engagement with Geraldine Richmond

The University of Puget Sound Chemistry Department is excited to welcome Geri Richmond, the Presidential Chair in Science and Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oregon, to campus next week for a seminar sponsored by the Jean Dreyfus Lectureship. Prof. Richmond is the winner of the 2018 American

Chemical Society Priestley Medal. We would like to invite you to attend Prof. Richmond’s talk, “Empowering Global Scientific Engagement”, on Thursday, April 5 at 7 pm in the Kilworth Memorial Chapel (1500 N 18th St, Tacoma, WA 98416). The abstract for her talk is provided below.

"In rural Laos, more than 50% of newborns will be stunted by age 2 due to chronic malnourishment and drinkable water. Worldwide, 161 million children under the age of five—many of them in Africa and Asia—suffered irreversible stunting as of 2013. Food security is only one of the many complex and interconnected challenges embedded in ensuring a sustainable world in the face of climate change and a population soon to reach 9 billion. All such challenges demand a major shift in how we seek innovative ways to co-exist with ever-expanding needs for energy, food, water, and a healthy environment. Solutions demand innovative international research collaborations and policies that include talents and perspectives from both the developed and developing world. This presentation will share the many stories and insights gained from my collaborative efforts with several thousand scientists and engineers in many developing countries around the globe."
