Poster Session BLAST 2017

BLAST. Presentations from rising stars in the in fields of prokaryotic signal transduction and locomotion! Cutting edge keynote speakers! Generous and welcoming collegues! 

Dates: January 17-22, 2021. Charleston SC, Francis Marion Hotel

Chair: Christine Josenhans (Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich, Germany)

Vice Chair: MD Motaleb (East Carolina University, USA)

Travel Awards: Several travel awards are available to offset the registration cost for students and postdocs. These are designed to allow students/postdocs who have limited funds and would otherwise not be able to attend and present, with priority given to scientists from developing countries. No more than one award per lab is given. The funds are typically given as a waiver for a portion of the registration fee, and in some cases, funds for part of travel expenses.  If you would like to be considered, please have your advisor send a short email request to Sarah Van Heusen that includes that abstract of the presentation and a short explanation of why the funds are needed. Requests are due at the time of talk abstract submission (even if the recipient is presenting a poster), and the awardees must present at the meeting.
