The 19th Annual R. Bryan Miller Symposium was held February 28th and March 1st. SAC ACS was happy to co-sponsor this event, which brings together students and professional chemists from the Sacramento and greater Bay areas.Thursday’s session focused on the chemistry and biology of pain, culminating in a plenary talk by Justin DuBois about sodium ion channel structure and function, followed by the SAC ACS sponsored poster session. Friday saw a full day of talks ranging across organic synthesis to new developments in pain models. The day opened with a talk from Hosea Nelson about carbocation chemistry, and cumlinated in a talk by Alanna Schepartz focusing on EGFR.
