In the world of competitive and professional sports, chemistry is more impactful than you might think. Discover the materials that chemists are creating to enable athletes to perform better and stay safer, as well as how analytical chemistry is advancing to detect performance enhancing substances in order to keep the playing field level for everyone. During this interactive event, viewers will be able to network with young chemists and have an opportunity to ask questions live to the experts regarding the amazing work that is being done in sports science.
