Program & Speakers.jpg


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.  Over the last two years, 25% of the program talks were from open submissions. 

Please note - Symposium Sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. on July 9, and end around noon on July 12. We encourage you to arrange travel so that you are able to take advantage of the full day of sessions on both days.

Annual Symposium Attendee Feedback

  • “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.”
