David Vicic gave invited lectures at the University of Ottawa and at Juniata College. He was also an invited speaker at the ACS National Meeting in San Francisco, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting of the ACS held in Hershey, and the International Symposium on Fluorous Technologies held at Tufts University. Two members of the Vicic lab--Long Xu and Peter Kaplan--defended their Ph.D. dissertations in 2017. Long is currently working as a postdoc in the labs of Nobel Laureate Barry Sharpless. Peter is beginning a position in industry at Croda.
