The annual Tri-Institutional Chemical Biology Symposium showcases research at the forefront of chemical biology and is sponsored and organized by the Tri-Institutional PhD Program in Chemical Biology (TPCB), a joint graduate program of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, The Rockefeller University, and Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. Undergraduate students interested in chemical biology are especially encouraged to attend!
Poster submissions are welcomed from all attendees, including early college high school students, undergraduates, postbaccalaureate students, research assistants and technicians, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research staff, and faculty. Posters will be presented live by video in parallel meeting rooms. Posters will be judged by TPCB faculty members and keynote speakers for selection of poster awards sponsored by TPCB and our promotional partners.
TPCB is strongly committed to diversity and inclusion. We welcome scientists from underrepresented minority groups and disadvantaged backgrounds, and those with disabilities. We do not tolerate racism, discrimination, or harassment of any kind. All attendees are expected to maintain the highest standards of professional conduct throughout the symposium.
