Turkey Run Analytical Chemistry Conference 2022

~Abstract Submission & Registration Deadlines Extended to 9/7/2022~

Friday, September 30 – Saturday, October 1, 2022

What is the Turkey Run Analytical Chemistry Conference?

The Turkey Run Analytical Chemistry Conference is a student-organized meeting held at Turkey Run State Park in Marshall, Indiana.  Purdue University and Indiana University established the meeting in 1970.  The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign joined the conference in its early years, and University of Notre Dame officially joined in 2008.  The conference provides a unique setting in which the attendees from top analytical chemistry divisions in the country can interact in a relaxed environment while sharing knowledge and experiences on a more personal level that may be difficult to attain at larger conferences.  Attendees typically include mostly graduate students and some post-doctoral staff, professors, and undergraduate students.

Keynote Speaker

Marta Venier is an environmental chemist and Assistant Professor at the Paul O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. In her research she employs analytical chemistry and mass spectrometry techniques to study the fate, transport, and behavior of persistent organic pollutants in the indoor and outdoor environment, including both legacy and emerging pollutants. Since November 2019, she has been leading the Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network (IADN), a monitoring program funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
