The NYSCC got its start in 1955, counts some 1,500+ industry professionals among its membership, and is perhaps best known for its annual Suppliers Day event (set to take place in New York City again this May).
Members hold a variety of jobs throughout the industry: as formulating chemists, research and development experts, ingredient souring professionals, marketers, salespersons, and more; and they work with every sort of company and business that serves and sustains the cosmetics, personal care, and fragrance industries.
It’s fair to assume that a preponderance of NYSCC members hold a degree in cosmetic science. And the programing at the organization’s event on March 13 is about Universities that teach in this space and confer such degrees.
Promotional posts about the upcoming event in Totowa, New Jersey, promise to help attendees answer questions including, How many university level cosmetic science programs exist? What makes each of them unique? What type of research do they each do? and What constitutes an education in cosmetic science?
The Cosmetic Science in Academia event will run from 11:30am until 4:00pm on Wednesday, March 13, and opens with a lunch and poster session (highlighting research from students at the participating universities) and a talk from Steve Harman entitled, What is Cosmetic Education?
The afternoon presentations will feature Dr. Kavssery Ananthapadmanabhan, speaking about the program at the University of Cincinnati; Dr. Gabriella Baki, discussing cosmetic science at the University of Toledo; and Abbe Rosenthal of Rutgers University. At the close of the day, awards will be given to the student scientists behind the most successful poster presentations.
