W. Robert Scheidt, William K. Warren Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, recently completed a visiting professorship for senior international scientists with the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He spent one month at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing giving seminars and serving as a mentor for many students.
Scheidt worked with several masters and Ph.D. candidates in group meetings, during presentations, and in many informal settings. These meetings gave the students the opportunity to practice their English and to ask Scheidt questions about their research. A few students have also kept in touch with Scheidt since leaving China and sent him more questions about their work.
