Visiting scientists

Each year, the Musselman Visiting Scientist program brings a prominent chemist to campus for an intensive series of lectures on contemporary issues in the field. The series sharpens the knowledge of students and faculty alike and creates connections with chemists at other institutions of higher learning and in industry.

Nobel Laureate Professor Richard R. Schrock (above with students) was the Musselman Visiting Scientist for 2014-2015. Schrock is a Professor of Chemistry at Massachusetts Institute of Technology where his research group studies the chemistry and reactivity of transition metals for metathesis reactions.
