This is the third Pennsylvania Regional Biophysical Society Networking Meeting. The purpose of this networking event is to promote interactions among researchers working in biophysics, biochemistry, bioengineering, cell and molecular biology, and related areas in Pennsylvania and nearby states. The meeting will include talks, poster presentations, vendor tables, and time for informal networking.  

This meeting is a great opportunity to establish new contacts and let others know about your work. It is also a great opportunity for undergraduate, graduate students, and postdocs to practice their poster presentation skills. Three speakers will be selected from submitted abstracts. Registration is free and lunch will be provided.

Abstract Submission and Registration

Anyone who completes the Registration may present a poster. Please limit abstracts to 200 words. Students are particularly encouraged to present -- this is a great chance for you to discuss your research with faculty and other experienced researchers. Every attempt will be made to accomodate all poster submissions; however, due to space limitations early submissions will have first priority.

Register by September 6, 2013 to be considered for a talk. Registration deadline for the Meeting is September 20, 2013. To register, please click here
