What IS the Annual Symposium?

The Protein Society’s premier event, our Annual Symposium, hosts 700 hundred chemists, biologists, physicists, mathematicians, students, and educators who share a unifying interest in understanding the nature of proteins.

Structured with two concurrent sessions and spanning 3.5 days, the event features a multitude of opportunities for networking, plentiful speaking slots for selected early-career scientists, and unique workshops for students AND educators.
