The fourth annual MRL Biological Conference will be Nov. 4 and 5 at the Materials Research Laboratory. The laboratory offers an array of characterization tools, which enable a wide range of structural research in biological and advanced materials systems. To further educate current and future facility users in the number of options available to them, this workshop is devoted to biological inquiry and applications.
Sessions include presentations by Ka Yee Lee, of the University of Chicago; and U. of I. faculty members Ryan Bailey, chemistry, Rashid Bashir, the head of bioengineering, Rohit Bhargava, bioengineering, Brian Cunningham, electrical and computer engineering, and Elizabeth Driskell, pathobiology.
Students are invited to participate in a research poster and oral presentation competition.
To participate in the conference presentations, vendor fair, facility tours or demonstrations, register online for $20.
