ACS CARB

Letter from Peter Andreana - Carbohydrate Division Chair - 2018

Greeting everyone!

My name is Peter Andreana and I am excited to serve as the Chair of the ACS Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry (ACS CARB) in 2018.

Who are we?

The Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry (CARB) is an eclectic, comprehensive and global technical division of the ACS. We continually strive to be the premier society for carbohydrate chemists and chemists alike with efforts to continually increase membership. Our mission is to foster and promote the advancement of the field of carbohydrate chemistry and chemical glycobiology (or molecular glycoscience) with a heavy emphasis on highlighting the amazing scientists and people who drive it! We embrace the interdisciplinary nature of carbohydrates and strive to be encompassing and engaging in our efforts.

What does the Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry do?

• Organize and sponsor CARB programming at ACS National Meetings and Exposition, including special symposia, award symposia, and poster sessions. On occasion, we participate in joint symposia with other divisions, including recent and popular joint symposia with CELL. Please continue to submit abstracts for ACS CARB programming!

• Organize and sponsor symposia at international meetings dedicated to glycosciences, such as Gordon Research Conferences, International Carbohydrate Symposia, Pacifichem, etc.;

• Produce the biannual ACS CARB Newsletter that is distributed to members a month before the ACS National Meeting;

• Support other ACS symposia relevant to carbohydrate chemistry and chemical glycobiology, including the ACS Division of Professional Relations, ACS Undergraduate Chemistry Students, ACS Regional Meetings, etc.;

• Provide opportunities for undergraduate chemists, for example, travel awards and poster awards;

• Organize and support award programs, including the Claude S. Hudson Award, the Melville L. Wolfrom Award, the Horace S. Isbell Award, the David Y. Gin New Investigator Award, and the Derek Horton Award in Industrial Carbohydrate Chemistry

Why should you join the CARB Division?

• Membership benefits include access to the Members section of our website, http://carb.sites.acs.org/, for networking, chemistry discussions and latest news/events;

• Additional membership benefits include: 1) advertisement for position openings or seeking new employment, and 2) receipt of CARB emails with news as well as reminders of important deadlines.

• Your annual dues ($12.50 for regular members, $7 for students) help us, as a non-profit organization run by volunteers, to support our mission and run the excellent programs described within.

***You do not have to be an ACS member to become a member and supporter of the CARB Division!

How can you get involved in CARB?

We are a volunteer organization and encourage you to get engaged. Attend or submit an abstract to present at CARB sessions at ACS National Meetings. Submit a symposium proposal for CARB session at an ACS National Meeting or an ACS Regional Meeting. Request financial support for conferences and symposia that you are planning to organize within or outside the ACS. Nominate someone for a CARB professional, student and postdoc, or publication award (See Awards & Fellowships on the CARB website). Volunteer to run for an elected position on the CARB Executive Committee (contact our Chair-Elect, Dr. Alexei Demchenko, demchenkoa@umsl.edu). Help us with our social media presence. Ask me or any Executive Committee member to implement your idea(s) to continually shape CARB for the future.

For more information, contact any Executive Committee member.

I look forward to serving you and our carbohydrate community.
