Distinguished Lectureships

Exciting lectures give food for thought.


The Department of Chemistry annually hosts three distinguished lectures. The Fred Pattison and 3M Lecture Series are highlights of the academic year and host preeminent scholars in the international chemistry community in all areas of Chemistry. The list of past lecturers includes several Nobel Laureates. The Paul de Mayo lectureship honours a recent Western Chemistry graduate, who is invited to return "home" to present a lecture on their current research.
