The Protein Society invites our members to submit proposals to develop and chair a session at the 32nd Annual Symposium in Boston, MA on July 9 - 12, 2018.
These "contributed sessions" will consist of four invited speakers. The contributing member will chair the session and may be a speaker. The selected chair will also be involved in the selection two additional short talks from the abstracts submitted to the Symposium in general. Selected chairs will have a budget to distribute to the four invited speakers for travel reimbursements.
Although outstanding science will be the primary criterion, the committee will also look for diversity in gender, geography, and ethnicity. You must be a Protein Society member to apply. Click here to become a member now!
