5th ICBE—International Conference on Biomolecular Engineering

January 11-14, 2015

The meeting will be held January 11-14, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines near Austin, Texas. The conference will be co-chaired by Hal Alper of the University of Texas at Austin and Mattheos Koffas of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Online registration is closed. You can register on site.

Conference Program

ICBE brings together researchers who are using quantitative approaches to advance the understanding and application of molecular biology. These scientists, engineers, and professionals are contributing to the development of analytical, molecular, high-throughput, and therapeutic strategies that are directly relevant to public health and energy related issues. The conference will stimulate efforts to integrate these approaches across the scales of biological complexity in a single-track Gordon-style conference format that includes hotel accommodations and most meals.
