CBC Tech Day
“Cutting-Edge Technologies — Driving Science Forward”
CBC invites all to attend CBC Tech Day. The main goal of Tech Day is to provide the Chicago research community with information about the core facilities and cutting-edge technologies available at the CBC universities. The following technologies will be highlighted: Synthetic Antibodies, Nanomaterials, Genomics, Molecular and Cellular Imaging, Small Molecule Screening and Metabolomics. New emerging technologies will be presented. The meeting will also include a poster session. The event is free of charge but pre-registration is required.
To accommodate CBC Tech Day attendees, online registration will remain open until the day of the meeting and we will also accept on-site registration. However, to meet the printers deadline for the program and abstract booklet, the names of attendees who register after the May 30th deadline will not be included in the printed program.
Online registration is now closed.
Please note: space is limited to 50 posters. Submission is now CLOSED.
The poster session will highlight biomedically relevant research conducted at CBC university core facilities. Submitted abstracts must identify the core(s) where the experiments were performed and provide a summary of the data. All abstracts will be evaluated for relevance to the meeting topic and acceptance decisions will be emailed to submitters by Wednesday, June 4, 2014. The posters must include the hypothesis being tested, descriptions of the methods used at the core facility, and the resulting experimental data and conclusions. Please note that the poster boards are 4’ (H) x 6’ (W).
