List of Winning Posters
The Chemistry - Biology Interface is a diffuse, dynamic and rapidly expanding frontier.
Establishing the molecular basis for biological phenomena is the ultimate goal. This
symposium seeks to foster communication of the latest relevant novel results and concepts.
Exclusively undergraduate research in all areas of chemistry, biology and biochemistry is
featured in the belief that progress at the interface of the chemistry and biology requires
cross-fertilization from the broadest possible spectrum of these disciplines.
Now in its thirteenth year, the Symposium invites contributions from all interested
Undergraduate concerning their research in any aspect of Chemistry, Biology and
Biochemistry. These latest advances will be disseminated in a day-long event at
which typically gather more than 400 students and mentors comprising about 200
contributions. This year we will follow exclusively a poster presentation format
in two sessions. Posters will be judged by a panel of participating mentors and
other attendees and awards will be made for 1st and
2nd place rankings in each category.
Registration for the Symposium is
, but free, and refreshments and lunch are provided gratis. Please plan on joining us
for this exceptional undergraduate experience!
All submitters should expect to present, no more than two presenting authors per poster.
