Will be Conducted on June 12,2008 at Pfizer Auditorium.

On June 12, 2008, Polytechnic University in conjunction with the New York Academy of Sciences will host a day-long symposium that highlights cutting-edge research on Bioactive Systems. It will highlight the recent advances in molecular design, self-assembly, gene circuit, artificial cell design, and evolution with applications in biology, medicine, environment, and energy. The symposium will be highly interdisciplinary and will bring together recognized scientists and engineers who are performing research in bioactive systems with core knowledge in the physical sciences and engineering. A poster session at the symposium will provide individuals the opportunity to present their research and interact with the attendees of the symposium.

This event is free to all. For more information and to RSVP, visit the New York Academy of Sciences.
