On Saturday, Nov. 3, the College of Arts & Sciences will host the third annual Laura J. and L. Douglas Meredith Symposium in the Chemical and Biological Sciences. The purpose of the symposium is to highlight women and first-generation undergraduates in the life sciences. This year’s keynote speakers are Elizabeth Dempsey G’09 and Susan Clardy ’08, G’12, who will present at 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., respectively.
A Ph.D. candidate in biochemistry and molecular biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania, Dempsey will deliver the symposium’s annual alumni address. Her presentation will touch on her time at SU, where she was a Syracuse University Scholar and member of The Renée Crown University Honors Program. Following a research stint at Johns Hopkins University, Dempsey enrolled in Penn’s top-ranked Perelman School of Medicine.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the Breed Lecture Hall (105) in the Life Sciences Complex from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The program includes two keynote lectures and eight student presentations.
