  • Chemical Biology Discussion Group Year-End Symposium

    Wednesday, May 25, 2016 | 11:30 AM - 5:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Chemical Biology Discussion Group

      • Registration Closed

    Post-translational modification of proteins play a critical role in wide ranging cellular process, increasing the diversity and function of the proteome. Elucidating the mechanisms underlying these processes is thus critical to our understanding of biology, and human health and disease. In 2016, the annual Chemical Biology Year-End symposium will feature distinguished keynote speakers Dr Philip Cole, from Johns Hopkins University Medical School, and Dr Kenneth Duncan, from Epizyme; bringing together academic and industry perspectives in the study of post-translational modification and epigenetics. This will be preceded by shorter, cutting-edge talks that span the scope of chemical biology by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows selected from abstract submissions, and a poster session.

    Chemical biology is a diverse and dynamic field involving chemical approaches to studying and manipulating biological systems. The goal of the Academy's Chemical Biology Discussion Group meetings is to enhance interactions among local-area laboratories working in chemical biology and to feature forefront research in chemical biology to the wider community. The meeting traditionally covers a range of current topics in chemical biology, including chemical probe development, organic synthesis, biosynthesis, protein engineering, and drug discovery.
