Description:
The Ninth Annual CBC Symposium, Engineering Biology: From tools to insights, will be held on Friday, October 21, 2011, at the UIC Forum, which is located on the UIC east campus. David Eddington (UIC), Lonnie Shea (NU), and Joel Collier (UChicago) have collaborated to organize this scientific event. The organizational committee has recruited three outstanding external keynote speakers: Christopher Chen (University of Pennsylvania), Douglas Lauffenburger (MIT) and Melody Swartz (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland). The symposium will also feature exceptional Chicago-area speakers: David Eddington (UIC), Joshua Leonard (NU) and Dorothy Sipkins (UChicago).

The symposium will include a poster session, which provides an excellent forum for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to present their current research. The event is free of charge but pre-registration is required.
