Second Molecular Biophysics Symposium

Virginia Tech University
Biocomplexity Institute
Blacksburg, VA
April 20, 2017



Speakers:

Dr. Linda Columbus, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA
Dr. Mark Foster, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH


Overview:

Virginia Tech will be hosting the Second Molecular Biophysics Symposium focused on biophysics of proteins. The event pursues two goals. First, it is designed to continue the interaction among biophysical research groups located at the southwest of Virginia. Second, the symposium will offer undergraduate students, with interest in continuing their graduate studies in biophysics, to meet with local and invited biophysicists.

We encourage undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdoctoral fellows to
participate in poster presentations.

Registration and Abstract Submission:

Registration and abstract submission will be open soon. 

Students will need to submit title and abstract (limited to 250 words) for either oral or poster presentation; top seven submissions will be selected for short talks, best oral presentation and three best poster presentations will be awarded.

If you have any questions, please contact Daniel Capelluto @ capellut@vt.edu.
