Our fourth biennial Structural Biology and Biochemistry Symposium aims to organize a forum of academic and industrial scientists whose research programs are poised to bridge both the academic and commercial realms. Our objective is to highlight the interconnectedness
of innovation between academia and industry. This entirely graduate student coordinated event results in a day that brings in leading researchers from across the state and mid-west together to foster a collaborative environment of new ideas in translating
Structural Biology and Biochemistry.
University of Colorado, Denver Anschutz Medical Campus Structural Biology & Biochemistry Program Graduate Students
Register by April 7th. Registration will also be available morning of the event at 8:00 am, however lunch cannot be guaranteed for later registrants. Abstracts for the symposium booklet and poster session are also due April 7th (see Abstract Guidelines

The author’s name who will be presenting the abstract should be highlighted. Each abstract should contain an introductory sentence indicating the purposes of the study, a brief description of pertinent experimental procedures, a summary of the data, and a statement of the conclusions.
The combined length of the abstract body should not exceed 400 words, not including authors and title.
Poster Guidelines The poster board assigned to each presenter has an area of 5 feet in width and 4 feet in height. Each presentation should contain a top panel listing the title of the abstract and the names and institutional affiliations of the authors.
