The abstract submission deadline for individuals who would like to be considered for Young Investigator Talks, Contributed Talks and/or Travel Grants, is March 7, 2018.
Individuals who elect to only have their abstract reviewed and/or participate in the poster competition can submit their abstracts through May 31, 2018.

Protein Society Members
Current Protein Society members may sponsor their own abstract or someone else’s. Non-members may submit an abstract, but a TPS member must sponsor their abstract. TPS can help identify sponsors; e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also encourage non-members to take advantage of the lower abstract submission and Symposium registration rates by becoming a member.

Contributed Talks and Young Investigator Talks
Both talk opportunities are open to the public and will be included in the parallel sessions.
Contributed Talk (30 minutes)
Eligibility: Open to all
Contributed Talks by established and new faculty members of protein scientists working in the industry will be considered for selection and presentation at the Symposium by a review committee. The contributed talks will be chosen to complement and deepen the Symposium topical area. Over the past 2 years, 25% of talks came from this category. If you wish to contribute an abstract for a contributed talk, click here.
Young Investigator Talk (15 minutes)
Eligibility: Post PhD researchers and early-stage investigators in either academics or industry or any other research position within 8 years of getting their PhD degree.
Rooted in the belief that attendance at our Symposia presents an invaluable experience for future protein scientists. The Protein Society is committed to making it possible for young scientists to participate and benefit from our annual meeting. Click here to learn more about our travel grants opportunities.
The Protein Society will hold a poster competition at its 32nd Annual Symposium to recognize the top undergraduate and graduate student abstract presenters. Each winner will receive a check in the amount of $250.
