HMURS -- A History


The first Herty Medalist Undergraduate Research Symposium was held on September 15th, 2006 at Morehouse College. It was an outgrowth of new initiatives undertaken by the Herty Medal Committee of the ACS-GLS and headed by its chair, Prof. Rigoberto Hernandez, and championed by the ACS-GLS executive board. The first symposium was co-organized by Dr. Rigoberto Hernandez, Dr. John Hall, and Dr. Cameron Tyson. We expect that the venue will move through various undergraduate colleges in the Atlanta area. Please contact the chair of the ACS-GLS Herty Medal Committee if you are interested in hosting future HMURS events!
