Purdue is hosting the Fourth Midwest Membrane Trafficking and Signaling Symposium on campus on October 27th, 2017. This is a graduate student/post-doc organized initiative of which I am one of the co-organizers and Dr. Aguilar is our faculty advisor and Purdue liaison.
Here is a link to the website: https://webdev.science.purdue.edu/membrane/index.html
This day long symposium is the perfect platform to bring together Midwest researchers whose focus is on membrane biology, trafficking and molecular and computational signaling events. The symposium agenda includes two key note addresses by Dr. Peter Novick (UCSD) and by Dr. Williiam Klein (Northwestern University), talks by scientists from the Midwest, poster and oral presentations by graduate students and post-docs, and a career discussion panel. We encourage all graduates and post-doctorates to submit their abstracts for the poster session as some abstracts will be selected for oral presentations.
Registration is FREE but limited! Attached is a flyer with more information and the link for registering for the event. We will be sending a more detailed agenda as we get closer to the date of the symposium. Thank you and see you at the symposium!
