The Yale Chemical Biology Symposium is a day-long event that highlights and applauds scientific discovery at the interface of chemistry and biology. The series began in 1998, fueled by the energy of several young (and not so young) faculty in the departments of Chemistry, Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry (MB&B), and Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology (MCDB), and has been held yearly ever since. The symposium has been unbelievably successful - in recent years attendance has skyrocketed to include more than 300 researchers from Yale, nearby universities, and companies. A full roster of speakers is below. Most years include a young “up and coming” member of the community; for many of these individuals, the Yale CBS is their first talk at a major symposium.
The panel of speakers for 2016 is equally spectacular, including Jay Bradner (Novartis), Michelle Chang (UC, Berkeley), Todd Golub (Broad Institute), Brian Shoichet (UCSF), and Matt Simon (Yale).
