New Haven, Conn. – 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, Yale University,
- Gary Brudvig, Yale University,
- Xiaowei Zhuang, Harvard University,
- Wendell Lim, the University of California at San Francisco, and
- Vern Shramm, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
The symposium schedule and talk titles are available on the weblink below.
A juried poster session, recognizing chemical biology research at Yale, will follow the symposium. Posters will be on display all day, and prizes will be announced at 1:45 pm.
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.
The event is free of charge and open to the public. Lunch and refreshments are provided for all registered attendees. Registration, driving directions and a full schedule of the symposium are at the program website, http://www.yale.edu/chemicalbiology/ .
