Organized by Luke Lavis (Janelia), Jennifer Prescher (UC Irvine) and Martin Schnermann (NCI/NIH), this workshop is targeted towards graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who are chemists (broadly defined) and interested in applying chemistry to solve problems in biology.

Although the meeting will include a few plenary talks from senior researchers, the main goal of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for junior scientists to present their research, discuss bold ideas for the future, and network with peers, while also discovering potential independent early-career options at Janelia. The meeting is open to chemists from all backgrounds (e.g., organic, inorganic, analytical, materials, computational) who are interested in applying the “central science” to a broad array of biochemical or biological problems. We will thematically tune the agenda to explore some of the issues raised by participants. In order to maintain a small group atmosphere, allowing for productive discussions and presentations by everyone, space in the workshop is limited. Participants are expected to stay for the duration. We especially encourage applications from female scientists and those who identify with groups traditionally underrepresented in science.

Janelia will cover the cost of accommodation, meals and reasonable travel expenses.
