Calling all teens! You’re invited to the Delaware Teen Science Café, featuring a hands-on science presentation designed for you, created by local teen leaders. We’ll start with a pizza party, then explore how a knowledge of organic chemistry can make a difference in the world. Senior Research Investigator of Incyte Pharmaceuticals Tim Martin, Ph.D. leads the presentation and activities focusing on how chemists in the pharmaceutical industry employ critical thinking and creativity to devise treatments for numerous conditions and diseases we face.
Tim studied biochemistry as an undergraduate at the University of Delaware and organic chemistry in graduate school at the University of North Carolina. After earning his doctorate, Tim pursued post-doctoral studies in catalysis, worked as a Principal Chemist at a renewable fuel/chemical start-up company, and is currently a Senior Research Investigator at Incyte in Wilmington, where he is a process chemist working with a diverse team to help develop and advance novel treatments for cancer.
This event is FREE and only for teens grades 7-12. Pre-registration is required; parent permission forms need to be completed for all participants. Teen Science Cafe Release Form
