We invite you to the 12th Annual Molecular Biophysics and Biological Chemistry Retreat to be held on Thursday, September 22, 2011 at the Wadsworth Mansion. The retreat will feature four speakers from Wesleyan University, including two new faculty colleagues: Christina Othon (Physics) and Ruth Johnson (Biology). In addition, students in the Molecular Biophysics program will present posters on their research.
The keynote speaker for the retreat is Professor Vern L. Schramm from Albert Einstein College of Medicine; http://www.einstein.yu.edu/biochemistry/profile.asp?id=7856<http://rutchem.rutgers.edu/?q=node/54> Professor Schramm investigates enzymatic transition state structures to enable development of powerful drugs against cancer and other diseases.
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, Chemistry and MB&B departments.
Contact Professors David Beveridge, Ishita Mukerji, Manju Hingorani, or Erika Taylor with any questions.
