Contact Ben McCall.


The Astrochemistry Seminar Series is jointly sponsored by the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Astronomy, and financially supported by the National Science Foundation through a grant to the McCall group.

The intention of the series is to bring in world-class researchers in the interdisciplinary area of astrochemistry, and also to bring together the faculty and students of the two departments to encourage cross-fertilization of ideas.
