Welcome to GSS 2020!

About GSS

Since 1983, this symposium has been organized entirely by the graduate students within the Department of Chemistry at UB. Since that time, GSS has grown into an established and well-known symposium annually hosting as many as 150 graduate students at the University at Buffalo. This event offers graduate students from institutions across the northeastern United States and Canada, a forum to present their research to an audience of their peers. The symposium is a three day event consisting of posters and presentations given by attending graduate students; highlighted by three keynote speakers who are prominent in their field.
