Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society (ACS), unveiled its annual “Talented 12” list, highlighting early-career researchers in the chemical sciences who are fearlessly tackling difficult global problems. Among this year's group of innovators is Dr. Cesunica Ivey, recognized for her work as an air quality crusader tackling our daily exposures to dangerous emissions.
Using a rigorous review process, C&EN selected this year’s Talented 12 from a highly competitive pool. The world-changing work by this year’s group includes efforts to remove pollutants from water, transform the immune system to fight cancer and create the next generation of chemical catalysts.
The Talented 12 will each give a snapshot of their life and research during a virtual symposium on Sept. 27 and 28, featuring keynote speakers Carolyn Bertozzi, professor of chemistry, Stanford University, and Malika Jeffries-EL, associate dean of the graduate school of arts and sciences at Boston University.
