ACS

The Division works actively to support meetings that are of interest to our members, and to provide travel support to students and postdocs to attend the ACS National meeting.  For a list of past symposia sponsored by the Division of Biological Chemistry, follow this link.

ACS National Meeting

257th ACS National Meeting, March 31-April 4, 2019, Orlando, FL

The ACS Division of Biological Chemistry will organize a program of talks and posters for the ACS Spring National Meeting in Orlando, FL. The program will consist mainly of oral sessions composed of short 20 minute talks and poster sessions. Program Chair: Phil Bevilacqua, Pennsylvania State University.

Abstracts were due by October 29, 2018.

Poster Presentations: Posters will be presented at in two sessions (Current Topics in Biological Chemistry) during the week of the ACS meeting. The division encourages submission of abstracts for posters. Contributions on topics related to the themes of the organized symposia are particularly encouraged.

Oral Presentations: Oral presentations in symposia are by invitation only.  Graduate students and postdoctoral associates interested in an Oral presentation should submit their abstract to the “Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Research Symposium.”  Junior faculty and equivalent career stage investigators may submit abstracts for consideration of an oral presentation to the “Early Career Investigators in Biological Chemistry” session. Mid career investigators may submit abstracts for consideration of an oral presentation to the “Mid Career Investigators in Biological Chemistry” session.  Speakers will be selected for these symposia from the submitted abstracts.  If your abstract is not selected for an oral presentation, it will be moved to one of the two poster sessions.

Submission of Abstracts: Abstracts for contributed and invited talks and poster presentations should be submitted online.

Travel Awards: The Division offers travel awards for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to attend the National Meetings. The level of support is $600, which can be used to offset travel costs and registration fees. Detailed information about these awards can be found on the Travel Awards page.

2018 Regional ACS Meetings

Regional meetings of the American Chemical Society provide young chemists, particularly graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, the opportunity to make professional contacts and hone their presentation skills in a relatively low-key atmosphere. The Division of Biological Chemistry encourages its members to participate in the following regional meetings.
