Mission Statement: The Chemistry - Biology Interface (CBI-2017) Symposium (3rd July 2017)
The Chemistry-Biology interface transcends molecular scales and includes research in fields as varied as infectious disease and cancer therapeutics to bio-inspired catalysis and natural product synthesis. In these fields chemistry is used as a tool to understand, perturb or compliment biological systems, whilst working towards translation of findings into real world applications. We aim to help build a community of established and early career researchers to share knowledge and novel ideas on the applications of chemistry at the interface with biology. CBI-2017 will provide delegates with a vibrant forum for stimulating discussion and the opportunity to network with researchers from a variety of related fields. We hope that this event will raise the profile of high-level, local research and facilitate and encourage collaborative work.
Registrants are encouraged to submit abstracts on their research for consideration for podium (academics/final year PhD) or poster presentation. These should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for review by a panel.
All accepted papers will be presented at The Great Hall, Strand campus, King's College London.
