The College of Science and Department of Chemistry will host the 35th Midwest Enzyme Chemistry Conference (MECC) on Saturday, September 12, 2015, in the Hermann Hall Ballroom. A poster session and reception will follow from 4-6 p.m. in the Hermann Hall Gallery Lounge.
The MECC provides a forum for scientific exchange and collegial interactions among researchers working at the forefront of enzymology and its interface with biomedical and pharmaceutical science. The MECC attracts academic and industrial researchers from over a dozen states in the Midwest. Oral presentations, selected from the submitted abstracts, feature graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early-career faculty from the region. This year’s program chair is Joe Kappock, assistant professor of biochemistry at Purdue University School of Agriculture. David Minh, assistant professor of chemistry at IIT, is the local arrangements chair.
