The Chemistry Professional Development Organization (CPDO) welcomes all chemistry and chemistry-affiliated graduate students and postdocs at the University of Michigan.
We host approximately one event per month, with certain events (such as industry panels, academic job panels, and networking events) appearing yearly.

The Chemistry Professional Development Organization (CPDO) is hosting an alumni networking dinner on Friday, August 7th, 2015 at 6 pm at the Michigan Union in Ann Arbor. Following the Karle Symposium (8 am-5 pm), the alumni networking dinner will bring together graduate students, post-docs, and alumni in a relaxed setting to discuss how their education in chemistry has guided their career path/experience in chemistry on a more personal level.
This event is open to University of Michigan Alumni from any level (undergrad, grad, and post-doc), and we invite you to circulate this information freely to any current or former colleagues. In order to plan the logistics, we ask you to register for the Alumni networking event here by Friday, July 17.
The Karle Symposium, formerly the Vaughan Symposium and before that PECRUM, is an annual event hosted by the chemistry department that brings together roughly 300 researchers with >100 poster presentations, 7 oral presentations, and two keynote speakers. We seek to utilize this wonderful platform for research communication by including alumni in discussions. Come back to see how things have changed, meet up with your former advisor for lunch (on your own), and share your personal/chemical/career expertise with the latest cohort of graduate students at the dinner.
More details coming soon.
