12th Annual Frontiers in Chemistry and Biology Interface Symposium

Natcher Conference Center
Ruth L. Kirschstein Auditorium

Welcome to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Symposium "FCBIS 2019"

Research at the chemistry-biology interface has emerged as an enabling paradigm in modern biology and medicine. Jointly organized by the NCI’s Chemical Biology Laboratory and George Washington University, this day-long symposium is designed to highlight research from chemical biology experts and trainees across the mid-Atlantic region across a broad range of topics including:

  • Natural product discovery
  • Bioorthogonal chemistry
  • New organic fluorophores and imaging
  • Chemical manipulation of enzyme structure and function
  • Developing and applying biomaterials
  • Chemoproteomics and drug target elucidation

This symposium offers an intimate environment to foster discussion and learn more about the current status of chemical biology in the study of disease, share research, network with leading figures in the field and discuss applications of cutting-edge techniques with leading researchers. The schedule typically includes invited and submitted talks as well as poster sessions. There is no charge to attend the symposium and everyone – Research Scientists, Faculty, Post-Docs and Graduate Students – involved in research from academic, government and local industrial institutions is encouraged to participate.

We hope to see you at the 2019 Frontiers in Chemistry and Biology Interface Symposium!
