▶︎ CANCELED: Watson Lecture - Megasupramolecules: When Disaster Leads to Discovery
- Public Event
This event has been canceled.
This decision was made out of concern for the health of our community as a social distancing measure in light of COVID-19.
For updates from the Institute on its COVID-19 response, please visit Caltech's Coronavirus information page.
The events of 9/11 spurred Kornfield's research team to begin research on polymers that, when added to fuels like gasoline, minimize the risk of explosion when ignited. These polymers, known as megasupramolecules, change the way liquid fuels flow and could help reduce fatalities and injuries from plane crashes, auto accidents, and IED attacks on the battlefield.
This event is free and open to the public; however, registration is requested via Eventbrite. Registration is not a guaranteed seat or a reserved ticket*. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
