Carnegie Mellon Chemical Engineering Students Host Nobel Scientist Known for Ozone Depletion Research

WHAT: Nobel Prize recipient Mario J. Molina will be a keynote speaker at a Carnegie Mellon symposium sponsored by the Chemical Engineering Graduate Student Association. Molina, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was a joint recipient of the 1995 Nobel Prize in chemistry for work he did in explaining the role of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), fluids used in air conditioning systems that deplete the ozone layer in the stratosphere. The ozone layer shields the earth's surface from damaging ultraviolet radiation from the sun.

WHEN: 11 a.m., Thursday, October 17

WHERE: The Singleton Room, Roberts Engineering Hall, Carnegie Mellon University (off Frew Street near Schenley Park)
