This symposium, unique in the Bay, will provide an ideal forum to meet and exchange ideas covering themes in chemical biology, synthesis, and computational chemistry among students, postdocs, and industrial chemists.

The symposium will feature:

  • Keynote seminars from Stanford Professor Carolyn Bertozzi, UCSF Professor Bill DeGrado, and UC Berkeley Professor Richmond Sarpong
  • Industrial chemistry seminars from AbbVie, Gilead, Merck, and Novartis
  • Eight graduate student and postdoc short talks
  • Poster presentations by graduate students, postdocs, and industrial chemists from renowned institutions and companies around the Bay Area

Please join us to network with local chemists and learn about cutting-edge chemistry happening across the Bay Area’s outstanding academic institutions and biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.

The first Bay Area Chemistry Symposium is being hosted by the Merck Research Labs at 213 East Grand Avenue in South San Francisco.
