51st ESBOC Symposium “Chemical Synthetic Biology: Self-assembly, Encapsulation and Delivery” May 19th-21st 2017

The ESBOC Symposium has been held since 1969 at Gregynog Hall (nr. Newtown, Powys), which is a beautiful venue for a scientific meeting, and focuses on a different topic at the Chemistry-Biology interface each year.  This year’s Symposium is entitled “Chemical Synthetic Biology: Self-assembly, Encapsulation and Delivery”, and will take place on 19th – 21st May 2017, starting at 3.00 pm on Friday 19th May.

The plenary speakers are: Cheryl Kerfeld (Michigan State, USA), Don Hilvert (ETH, Switzerland), Roman Jerala (Ljubljana, Slovenia), Alexander Kros (Leiden, The Netherlands), Andrew Turberfield (Oxford, UK), Martin Warren (Kent, UK), Paul Verkade (Bristol, UK), and Anna Peacock (Birmingham, UK).  There will be a poster session at the meeting, and poster presenters will make a short ‘flash’ presentation of their poster to the conference attendees.
