IUPAC and IYCN: Forging New Connections to Support Younger Chemists Worldwide

Lori Ferrins / Evijola Llabani / Christine Dunne
Published Online: 2018-08-06 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/ci-2018-0305


The International Younger Chemists Network (IYCN) is an organization that aims to connect chemists who are in the early stages of their career, including but not limited to graduate school, postdoctoral associates, chemists within five years of their terminal degree, and chemists newly transitioning into the field. Our core objective is to reach like-minded scientists globally and create a platform for scientific exchange. With a focus on building a worldwide network, we strive to spread scientific knowledge, mentorship, and encourage a passion for chemistry.
