Twenty-nine early-career scientists from 10 countries have been selected to be part of the 2022 class of CAS Future Leaders. The class will participate in a weeklong program at CAS headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 15–20.
The program, organized by CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, aims to expand the professional networks of up-and-coming PhD students and postdoctoral researchers from around the world who are shaping the future of scientific information and innovation.
Awardees will collaborate on new initiatives to support the scientific community, exchange ideas about the role of information within the research process, and hear from industry and academic leaders about the role of science in the global economy, academia, and the media. Participants will also attend the ACS Fall 2022 in Chicago in August.
