Announcing ICBE 2011 - International Conference on Biomolecular Engineering

This post is presented by SBE, the Society for Biological Engineering--a global organization of leading engineers and scientists dedicated to advancing the integration of biology with engineering.

This January, SBE will be holding its 3rd International Conference on Biomolecular Engineering (ICBE)--a biennial celebration of all things bioengineering and a great opportunity for students, professors, and professionals to present their newest research in the field.

ICBE takes place at the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco, January 16-19, 2011

Conference topics this year include:

  • protein and other biomolecule engineering
  • biomolecular probes
  • metabolic pathway engineering
  • signaling pathways
  • synthetic biology
  • cellular process modifications

Call for Papers ends Wednesday, September 22, so be sure to get your abstract submissions in by then.

Three poster awards totalling $1500 will be presented, so don't miss out on this great opportunity to win recognition (monetary and otherwise) amongst your peers.

Incredibly influential engineers in the field will be speaking about their work including Frances Arnold, Vishva Dixit, Leroy Hood, and Roger Tsien. You have probably heard of some of these speakers, but as a reminder, Dr. Hood created the automated DNA sequencer and Dr. Tsien won the Nobel Prizxe in Chemistry in 2008 for his discovery of GFP.

You can find a much more extensive look at our speakers' contributions at

After you submit your abstract, you can register for the conference.

ICBE 2011 is an important opportunity to speak to and hear from the most important people in the field of Biotechnology. You can sign up here.
