July 1, 2019 at VNUHCM - University of Science, Prof. Yuan Tseh Lee from Academia Sinica - A Nobel Laureate in Chemistry visits and presents the public talk titled “Science at the frontier - My personal experiences of being a scientist”. 

At the talk show, Prof. Yuan Tseh Lee tells about a story of how a young man who grew up in war torn Taiwan overcame the gap between ideals and reality, the limitation set forth by traditional and conventional values, and dared to be different. He set his mind to become an outstanding scientist, and to work with idealistic people to make this world a better place to be. Finally, he made a giant step forward, in the field of dynamics of chemical reaction, especially in developing experimental apparatus, to advance our understanding of atomic and molecular process.

In addition to present the details of experimental studies of chemical dynamics, he also talks about the urgent situations human are facing, the issues of global warming and the sustainable development of human society.
