This is an announcement for the rescheduled ACS Upper Peninsula's annual fall meeting, which will be held on December 1st, 2016 at Michigan Technological University, Chemical Sciences Building, room 104B. The meeting will begin at 3:00 p.m. with a presentation entitled "Enzyme Biochemisty: Making a Living and a Life" given by Dr. Wilbur H. Campbell. Following, at 4:05 p.m., the Upper Peninsula local Section will hold its annual fall meeting. The meeting will conclude at 4:30 p.m., but members are encouraged to enjoy refreshments and socialize until 5:00 p.m.
Dr. Campbell, who has been a member of the American Chemical Society for almost 50 years, has a rich career in biochemical research. Much of his work has been focused on the plant enzyme, nitrate Reductase (NaR). Following his retirement from academia, he has been focusing his efforts in the management of his company, NECi, in Lake Linden, Michigan. He and his wife have been in business for over 20 years and they have been developing NaR and other enzymes through recombinant technology for use in analytical chemistry and environmental analysis. Dr. Campbell's seminar will take us on a tour from his beginnings in Santa Ana, California to the current projects of NECi Superior Enzymes. You can find more information about NECi at: http://www.nitrate.com/our-story
We hope that you will have the opportunity to join us this Thursday, December 1 at 3:00 p.m. at Michigan Tech.
