Chemical Biology Symposium

21 May 2018 09:30-18:00, London, United Kingdom

This symposium will showcase the state of the art in chemical biology, bringing together the wider community with leading national and international experts in the field. The programme will explore all aspects of chemical biology and highlight the wider scope and impact of the field. Additional aims of the event are to stimulate research collaboration, networking and engagement within the chemical biology community, as well as with those in related disciplines.
This event will include a poster session, providing an opportunity for early career researchers to share and discuss their recent research advances and to network with others delegates. Abstracts are welcomed from PhD students who are in their final year of study (at the time of submission), postdoctoral researchers and early career academics.
