2The Nucleus December 2012
Waltham, MA, Oct.11, 2012- When Nova Biomedical Corp. in Waltham, MA agreed to host the 926th meeting of the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society (NESACS), we asked whether we could add an afternoon sympo-sium to the venue and received an enthusiastic “yes.” Our section, NESACS, is the largest of the 187 sections of the ACSwith 7,500 members mostly in the greater Boston area. Most people are surprised to hear that. The symposium program isdescribed in the link below.http://www.scribd.com/doc/109009584/Updated-Small-Chem-Biz-Symposium-Info
