Greetings all from Purdue!

We would like to cordially invite you, your colleagues, students, postdocs and staff to our upcoming symposium hosted here at Purdue University, West Lafayette campus. The name of the symposium is:

   The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Biomolecular Galaxy symposium
   May 11-12, 2016
   ARMS 1010, Purdue University

The symposium will highlight research from students and postdocs from neighboring institutions and from many departments here at Purdue including Biological Sciences, Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Physics and Astronomy. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Peter Kwong from NIAID/NIH who will talk about his work on ‘Multi-dimensional searching and the coordinates of effective HIV-1 and RSV vaccines’.

In addition to the keynote address, the symposium will include six scientific sessions covering the following topics: Disease, Pathogenesis and Therapeutics; Biosynthesis and Catalysis; Biophysical Methods and Emerging Techniques; Macromolecular Assemblies and Complexes; and Disorder and Conformational Plasticity. There will also be opportunities for discussion and interactions during catered breaks, a poster session, and a reception.

And back by popular demand, a Career Session will also be hosted on the evening of May 10th at the Lafayette Brewing Company for students and postdocs and will include a panel representing industry, academia, and government.

Registration and abstract submission are both FREE. Undergraduates, graduates, and postdocs are encouraged to submit abstracts for poster or oral presentations. Prizes for best posters (undergrad ($100), grad ($150), and postdoc($150)) and oral presentations (grad ($200) and postdoc ($200)) will also be awarded at the close of the symposium.
