We plan to hold the 2022 Symposium in an in-person format if possible, with due consideration to institutional policies and public health conditions at that time. This will enable the event to be most interactive and productive for all participants, particularly poster presenters. However, we will also consider a hybrid format if there is sufficient interest among registrants to attend remotely via Zoom. Proof of vaccination is required for all in-person attendees.

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 judged by TPCB faculty members and keynote speakers for selection of poster awards sponsored by TPCB and our promotional partners. Tentatively, the poster session will only be available to in-person attendees; an update will be provided closer to the date.

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.
