Macro’s LaShanda Korley helps organize Kavli Frontiers of Science workshop

LaShanda Korley, the Climo Associate Professor and Kavli Fellow in the Case School of Engineering's Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering, traveled to Japan this week as a planning group member for the 14th Japanese-American Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium, sponsored by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.
 
Korley co-organized a session on biomimicry, from proposing and defending the topic to identifying leaders in the field, as well as coordinating logistics of the event.

 
Korley was invited to become part of the planning group after her participation in the event two years ago.
 
The symposium is intended to bring together outstanding young scientists to discuss advances and opportunities in their fields.
