The Protein Society Annual Symposium 2024 (PS38)

July 23 - 26, 2024 | Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada | Westin Bayshore Vancouver

The 38th Annual Symposium will take place on July 23 - 26, 2024 in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, in the Westin Bayshore Vancouver. Our Program Planning Committee is chaired this year by Angela M. Gronenborn, University of Pittsburgh and co-chair Mazdak Khajehpour, University of Manitoba. Fellow committee members include Jean Baum, Rutgers University; Gil Privé, University of Toronto. The PPC has assembled a program that spans the broad range of protein science, combining critical underpinnings of the field, the latest developments and a vision into the future with career development and technical workshops as well as ample networking opportunities. This year’s Symposium continues our commitment to open participation, with each session featuring contributed talks and speakers from across a broad range of topics.   PS38 Round
