Abstract

The Polymer Chemistry Division (POLY) is the sponsor of CME NASA Events at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis during three days:

8/14-15 CME NASA Symposium “Advancing Materials for Human Space Exploration” featuring 2001 & 2022 Nobel Laureate Barry Sharpless talk on “Click Chemistry: New Dimensions” and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory 13th Director Kimberly Budil, among other luminaries

8/16 PM CME NASA Earth & Space Sustainability Summit (CNESS) featuring NetZero 2050 talks by executives at Air Products, BASF, ExxonMobil, GSK, Northrop Grumman, McKinsey, Axiom Space.

The CME NASA STEM Events bring together industry, academia, government, and the public to enlarge the global STEM talent pool. Events will feature the sustainability of cutting-edge innovations in the chemical sciences to advance human space travel to the solar system and beyond, and translate them into new knowledge to improve the lives of people and make their dreams a reality. Three days packed with inspirational research, industry, jobs, and new STEM career paths. Over 3,200 STEM professionals and students have attended past CME NASA Symposiums from 2017 to 2022.

Honorees

K. Barry Sharpless

Scripps Research Institute

2001 & 2022 Nobel Laureate

Kim Budil

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Director

This fall CME STEM Leadership Awards will be presented to Barry Sharpless, Nobel Laureate in 2001 and 2022, Professor at The Scripps Research Institute and Kim Budil, 13th Director of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Sharpless is arguably the greatest scientist alive today. Of 959 awardees since 1901, only five have received the Nobel Prize twice. Marie Curie (physicist and chemist), Linus Pauling (chemist), John Bardeen (physicist), Frederick Sanger (bio-chemist), and Barry Sharpless (chemist). Budil directs the groundbreaking activities of a most distinguished center of scientific excellence.
