The symposium will focus on protein design, a subject that lies at the interface of chemistry, biology, engineering, and computer science, and will highlight the recent advances in proteins, specifically focusing on innovative approaches to tailor proteins with unique functions and architectures. This symposium is highly interdisciplinary and will bring together recognized scientists and engineers who are performing cutting-edge research with core knowledge in the physical sciences and engineering. In addition to the speakers, there will be a poster session that will showcase the work of students and postdocs.
An important goal of this symposium is to highlight the research advances in protein design from the New York area's academic, government, and industrial institutions by convening and promoting the exchange of ideas. Thus, there will be a poster session at the symposium. This will provide individuals the opportunity to present their research and interact with the attendees of the symposium.
