16th Annual Tri-Institutional Chemical Biology Symposium, 1st September 2020

Chemical Science is pleased to be sponsoring the 16th Annual Tri-Institutional Chemical Biology Symposium along with RSC Chemical Biology and Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry. The event will take place virtually on the 1st of September, 2020, 09:00-18:30 EDT.

This event showcases research at the forefront of chemical biology, and is sponsored and organized by the Tri-Institutional PhD Program in Chemical Biology (TPCB), a joint graduate program of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, The Rockefeller University, and Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City.

Register for this free event here by the 28th of August 2020

Undergraduate students interested in chemical biology are especially encouraged to attend.

Poster submissions are welcomed from all attendees, including early college high school students, undergraduates, postbaccalaureate students, research assistants and technicians, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research staff, and faculty. Posters will be presented live by video in parallel meeting rooms, and judged by TPCB faculty members and keynote speakers for a selection of poster awards sponsored by TPCB and their promotional partners, including Chemical Science, RSC Chemical Biology and Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry.

For more information, please visit the Tri-Institutional Chemical Biology Symposium event page.

TPCB has been strongly committed to diversity and inclusion since its inception. It welcomes scientists from underrepresented minority groups and disadvantaged backgrounds, and those with disabilities. It does not tolerate racism, discrimination, or harassment of any kind. All attendees are expected to maintain the highest standards of professional conduct throughout the symposium.

Gabriel is a Professor in the Applied Physics Department at Centro de Investigacion y de Estudios Avanzados Merida (Cinvestav Mérida), México. He studied at the Universidad de las Americas Puebla (BSc in Chemistry, 1997) and Cinvestav Zacatenco (PhD in Chemistry, 2003) under the supervision of Alberto Vela. He then joined the group of Gotthard Seifert and Thomas Heine at TU Dresden as a postdoctoral fellow before returning to Mexico in 2005 to take his first independent research position at the Universidad de Guanajuato. He joined Cinvestav Merida in 2012 and his research group is one of the most active groups in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry in Mexico and Latin America.

Gabriel has also spent time researching at Cornell University (Roald Hoffmann, 2005), and the University of the Basque Country (Jesus Ugalde, 2011). He is a member of the Mexican National Researcher System (Level 3, the highest level), and a member of the Mexican Academy of Sciences. He has been awarded the Research Grant from the Academia Mexicana de Ciencias (2012), the Catedra Marcos Moshinsky (2012), the National Prize “Andres Manuel del Rio” in Chemistry from the Mexican Chemical Society (2017), the Walter Kohn Award (2018) from the International Center of Theoretical Physics, and the Moshinsky Medal (2019) from Institute of Physics (UNAM).
