The Maryland Section invites submission of abstracts for the 43rd Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting (MARM 2012) of the American Chemical Society. The meeting will be held at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), on May 31 through June 2.
The meeting’s technical program will include symposia on topics such as the chemistry of renewable energy, bioanalytical chemistry, carbohydrate and medicinal chemistry, and computational and structural biochemistry.

The meeting will also feature poster sessions and workshops on a variety of topics as well as a vendor exhibition. Educational programming is planned for high school teachers and those in higher education, and the UMBC student member group will host a number of events for undergraduates.
