31st Ann Sym ad small jpg.jpg

“This was the first conference I have attended, and as an undergraduate, it was an amazing opportunity. My interests were definitely grounded in wanting to pursue a PhD in a biochemical or biomedical field so that one day I could possibly be conducting my own investigations and continue to be part of such an amazing community of scientists.”

Structured with two concurrent sessions, the Annual Symposium features a multitude of opportunities for networking, plentiful speaking slots for selected early-career scientists, and unique workshops for students and educators alike. The Protein Society proudly encourages abstract submissions for Young Investigator and Contributed Talks from its members.

If you are arranging travel for the Symposium, here are some helpful tips. Sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. on July 24, so we encourage you to arrive the day before in order to take full advantage of Day 1 Programs and our pre-Symposium gathering. On July 27, we expect programs to wrap up at noon. We strongly encourage you to not miss the sessions on July 27th and schedule your departure accordingly.
