The recording of this past event held on June 1 will be available until August 1. It features Trinseo CEO Frank Bozich and the 3MT Yale student presentation. Not included in the recording is the presentation of the cash prize to the four winners of the 2022 CME Undergraduate Summer Research Scholarships.
Trinseo’s path to become a specialty materials and sustainable solutions provider started with portfolio transformation and continues with new approaches to technology and commercialization. Success will be determined by unlocking value for customers by delivering the highest quality materials, premier technical expertise, and a critical focus on sustainability – especially in the key end applications of mobility, building and construction, medical and consumer goods.
Differentiated technology and innovation will allow Trinseo to meet unfilled and unrecognized customer needs and develop sustainable solutions across the company’s innovation pillars. Increasing the sustainability of its product portfolio with sustainable chemistries and driving corporate and business operations to minimize its impact on climate change will serve as catalysts towards achieving the company’s transformation into a global specialty materials and sustainable solutions provider. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet in person with the STEM leader and architect of this bright new era for Trinseo.
During the event introduction, the 3-minute Thesis Yale Chemistry student winner (3MT) will present the “The Ribosome: Modifiable Machine – A Chemist’s Approach.”
Diondra Dilworth is an organic chemist who’s also interested in STEM education/outreach and music among other things. Born and raised in Las Vegas, NV, she moved to Cambridge, MA to attend Harvard University to study chemistry and computer science. Upon graduation, she moved to Yale University in New Haven, CT where she is an NSF GRFP-Funded PhD Candidate in Chemistry in Prof. Scott Miller’s group. Her research is part of C-GEM (Center for Genetically Encoded Materials), an NSF-funded interdisciplinary multi-institution collaboration effort tasked to answer the holy-grail question: can the ribosome, nature’s protein synthesizing machine, be re-engineered to rapidly synthesize sequence-defined polymers with chemically-, biologically-, or otherwise relevant structures, functions, and/or utilities? With the help of talented chemical biologists, structural biologists, computational biologists, and molecular biologists in universities across the United States, she hopes to use her synthetic chemistry skills to make the answer to that question “Yes!”.
Chemical Marketing and Economics, Inc. (CME) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 Undergraduate Summer Research Scholarships for college juniors majoring in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering or related fields in the New York metropolitan (NY-NJ-CT) area.
