Subject: 15.07.22 The 29th Annual Symposium of The Protein Society
The 29th Annual Symposium, to be held July 22-25, 2015 at the Fira de Barcelona - MontjuÃ¯c, in Barcelona, Spain. The annual Protein Society Symposium acts as a nexus for leading protein researchers from around the world and serves as a high-profile, international platform for the presentation of trans-disciplinary, forefront discoveries in protein science. This is the first time in its nearly 30-year history that The Protein Society's annual meeting will be held outside of the U.S.. The Organizers - With diverse expertise and a breadth of experience that spans the full spectrum of disciplines, methodologies, technologies, and fields involved in the study of protein structure, function, and design, the all- volunteer Program Planning Committee members are: James Wells, Ph.D. (Chair) Professor & Chair, Dept. of Pharmaceutical Chemistry University Of California, San Francisco Oscar Millet, Ph.D. CIC bioGUNE Center for Cooperative Research in Biosciences Structural Biology Unit Miquel Pons, Ph.D. Professor, Organic Chemistry Department University of Barcelona Gary Pielak, Ph.D. Distinguished Term Professor of Chemistry University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Sarah Teichmann, Ph.D. Research Group Leader EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute & Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Mark A Lemmon, Ph.D. Professor & Chair, Dept. of Biochemistry & Biophysics University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine The Program - With 13 scientific sessions spanning 3.5 days, the meeting consists of 2 concurrent morning and 2 concurrent afternoon research sessions. It will begin with a welcome from Society President James Bowie (Professor and Vice Chair, Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California - Los Angeles), followed by an Opening Plenary Talk from a 2015 Protein Society Award winner. The program will include talks by 2 2015 Protein Science 'Best Paper" winners -first authors selected from articles published in the Protein Society's journal in the preceding year. The program will benefit from speakers representing the Latin American Protein Society and the Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function, and includes the following with research sessions: Engineering & Interpreting The Genome, Proteomics (PTMs, PPIs), Observing Dynamics In Single Cells, Chemical Biology, Folding, Cell Engineering, Protein Allostery & Dynamics, Intrinsically Disordered Proteins, Protein Engineering, Systems Biology, Integrative Protein Science, Enzyme & Pathway Engineering, and the Plenary Awards Session. Students & Young Investigators - A hallmark of The Protein Society Symposium is the special emphasis placed upon fostering the growth and development of young scientists. Through unique and plentiful opportunities for mentorship and interaction with established researchers, career guidance via educational workshops led by experienced educators and industry representatives, as well as numerous prospects for recognition of their work and participation. Two Young Investigator speaking slots are reserved in each session for postdoctoral scientists in the early stages of an independent career, selected from submitted abstracts. A competitive and robust Graduate Student Poster Competition with 10 Best Poster Prizes allows graduate students to gain experience defending their research and provides invaluable opportunities to network. The Education Committee presents an Undergraduate Research Session where winning students can learn valuable skills by giving talks to a receptive and supportive audience. Workshops led by experts and organized by the Mentoring Committee focus upon building core scientific competencies such as effective speaking and scientific writing as well as offering real-world insights that support informed professional advancement. A highlight for all participants are the Networking Dinners, where students and postdocs can share an informal, low-cost meal with invited speakers or Society leaders in a casual, unmoderated setting. Graduate Student and Early- Career registration rates are significantly discounted, and undergraduate member registration is free. Travel Assistance - Sizeable and plentiful travel awards will be available through 3 sources: The Finn Wold Travel Awards & The Protein Science Young Investigator Travel Grants (sponsored by Wiley) will provide awards ranging from $500 - $1,500 to assist students and postdocs with traveling expenses. In their first year, the new Hans Neurath Outstanding Promise Travel Awards (sponsored by the Hans Neurath Foundation) will award 20 outstanding young researchers a $500 cash prize, up to $1,500 in reimbursed travel costs, an invitation to publish their research in Protein Science gratis, and recognition during the Plenary Awards Session. All travel awardees receive a complimentary 2015 membership with full benefits.
