We invite you to the 13th Annual Molecular Biophysics and Biological Chemistry Retreat on Thursday, September 27 at the Wadsworth Mansion. The retreat will feature seminars from four faculty, Wesleyan’s David Beveridge, Amy MacQueen, Michael Weir, and Wesleyan alumna Kylie Walters (University of Minnesota; http://www.cbs.umn.edu/bmbb/contacts/kylie-j-walters).
In addition, graduate and undergraduate students from the Molecular Biophysics program will present research posters.
The keynote speaker for the retreat is Professor Bertrand García-Moreno from Johns Hopkins University; http://biophysics.jhu.edu/bgme/index.html. Professor García-Moreno’s research is aimed at understanding electrostatics in protein systems and how these forces influence protein folding, structure and function.
Molecular Biophysics is an interdisciplinary program that has been supported by an NIH training grant for over 25 years. The retreat is made possible by support from the training grant and the Chemistry and MB&B departments.
