VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday beginning at noon on Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience, and happy holidays!
Virginia Tech hosted the first Molecular Biophysics Symposium focusing on structural biology studies of proteins. The event pursued two goals. First, it was designed to enrich the interaction among biophysical research groups located in southwest Virginia. Second, the symposium offered undergraduate students, interested in continuing their graduate studies in biophysics, the opportunity to meet with local and invited biophysicists and structural biologists. Four speakers were selected from submitted abstracts by graduate students. We also encouraged undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to participate in poster presentations.
