Greetings from the Chair
My name is Peter Andreana and I am excited to serve as the Chair of the ACS Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry (ACS CARB) in 2019.
Who are we?
The Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry (CARB) is an eclectic, comprehensive and global technical division of the ACS. We continually strive to be the premier society for carbohydrate chemists and chemists alike with efforts to continually increase membership. Our mission is to foster and promote the advancement of the field of carbohydrate chemistry and chemical glycobiology (or molecular glycoscience) with a heavy emphasis on highlighting the amazing scientists and people who drive it! We embrace the interdisciplinary nature of carbohydrates and strive to be encompassing and engaging in our efforts.
What does the CARB Division do?
Benefits of Membership
How to Get Involved
We are a volunteer organization and encourage you to get engaged. Attend or submit an abstract to present at CARB sessions at ACS National Meetings. Submit a symposium proposal for CARB session at an ACS National Meeting or an ACS Regional Meeting. Request financial support for conferences and symposia that you are planning to organize within or outside the ACS. Nominate someone for a CARB professional, student and postdoc, or publication award (See Awards & Fellowships on the CARB website). Volunteer to run for an elected position on the CARB Executive Committee (contact our Chair-Elect, Dr. Alexei Demchenko, firstname.lastname@example.org). Help us with our social media presence. Ask me or any Executive Committee member to implement your idea(s) to continually shape CARB for the future.
For more information, contact any Executive Committee member.
I look forward to serving you and our carbohydrate community.
