Annual Frontiers in Chemistry Symposium

February 5, 2021 | La Jolla, California

The objective of our Symposium is to provide an experience and opportunity for our graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and neighboring scientists to hear from and meet some of the best scientists in the world. The invited distinguished speakers present research covering diverse topics within the molecular sciences.

The annual tradition of this event began with the establishment of the Department of Chemistry at Scripps Research. The inaugural event was held in 1990.

Over the years, we have hosted 113 lectures by 100 different distinguished scientists from all over the world whose renowned work is of great interest to the scientific community at Scripps Research and our neighbors. Among these speakers, we have had an impressive 13 Nobel laureates.

Our Annual Symposium is held at the Scripps Research Auditorium, part of an architecturally renowned complex on our La Jolla, California, campus located on the Torrey Pines Mesa. Many biotech and pharmaceutical companies from across the globe enjoy participating via both sponsorship of and attendance at the event.
