Annual Chemical Biology Symposium at Yale May 14, 2004
The Yale Chemical Biology Symposium, Friday May 14, is a day-long event designed to highlight and applaud new developments in science at the interface of chemistry and biology.
The symposium will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in Room 110, Sterling Chemistry Laboratory, 225 Prospect Street, New Haven, Connecticut.
The annual symposium began in 1998, fueled by the energy of several young and many seasoned faculty in Chemistry, Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry, and Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology. The symposium has been extremely successful. In recent years attendance has included more than 300 students and faculty from Yale, nearby universities, and companies.
The noted speakers for this year include Peter Kim, President of the Merck Research Laboratories, Tom Pollard and Gary Brudvig of Yale University, Xiaowei Zhuang of Harvard University, Wendell Lim of University of California at San Francisco, and Vern Shramm of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The schedule for the symposium, and talk titles are available on the weblink.
The symposium will be followed by a juried poster session recognizing chemical biology research at Yale. Posters will be on display all day, and prizes will be announced at 1:45 pm.
The event is free of charge and open to the public. Lunch and refreshments are provided for all registered attendees.
The Symposium is supported by the Yale Corporate Partnership in the Sciences. Corporate Partners include Boehringer-Ingelheim, and Monsanto; we are also grateful to Alexion Pharmaceuticals, AstraZeneca R&D Boston, Arqule, Inc., Aventis, and Gilead Sciences for support.
