ACS Webinars is hitting the road this April to broadcast some of the excitement LIVE from the ACS National Meeting straight to you. Indulge yourself with a live food chemistry demonstration and then redeem yourself by learning about the chemistry of weight loss. Learn about how developments in lipid self assembly can be applied to medicine and cleaning our environment. You will also learn how you can win funding for your ideas on how to make products out of waste. We hope you’ll join us!
“LIVE Cooking Demo: Egg Science Deconstructed”
Meet The Experts
César Vega earned his doctorate in Food Science from the University College Cork (Ireland). His areas of expertise include dairy emulsions, the physical chemistry of cocoa and the science of cooking. He has published 20+ peer-reviewed manuscripts and one book. Today he is a research manager at Mars Inc. where he works on the incorporation of cocoa flavanols into foods and provides guidance in the area of food material science. Dr. Vega is a passionate cook. He possesses culinary training from Le Cordon Bleu. He was one of the expert reviewers in Myrhvold’s Modernist Cuisine, is a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Gastronomy and Food Science, and of Food Biophysics.

“Future of Lipid Self Assembly: From Drug Delivery to Dispersants for Oil Spills”
Meet The Expert
Dr. John works in the highly interdisciplinary areas of lipid self-assembly, drug and vaccine delivery, and the development of nanostructured materials. He currently leads a consortium project for the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (www.gomri.org), called the Consortium for the Molecular Engineering of Dispersant Systems (C-MEDS). This group’s primary objective is to design the next generation of dispersants and understand the fundamentals of the oil-water interface in the presence of dispersants.
“Converting Waste into Products: Opportunity for $35 Million Global Grand Challenge Awards”
Meet The Experts
Dr. Young’s extensive background has given her expertise in concrete admixture chemistry, stable isotope applications, polymer synthesis, and small molecule synthesis – including dyes and peptides.
