Please join us for the first annual Northeast Symposium on Proteomics and Protein Chemistry (NESPPC). In its maiden year this event will be held in the 1st floor auditorium of the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research (BTI) on the Cornell University Campus. The timing of the meeting was selected to coordinate with the annual meeting of the Northeast Regional Life Sciences Core Directors Meeting (NERLSCD) and all NERLSCD attendees are encouraged to attend. However, it should be noted that this meeting is free and open to the general public and all interested parties are welcome. Although there is no preset attendance limit we are asking attendees to preregister to facilitate organization, logistics and ordering. Registration can be done free of charge at the link below.
