The 38th Summer Symposium in Molecular Biology

July 30 – August 2, 2019
The Pennsylvania State University,
University Park Campus

Please join us for the 38th Penn State Summer Symposium in Molecular Biology on “Chromatin and Epigenetic Regulation of Chromatin”.  This will be the seventh of our quadrennial symposium on chromatin biology at Penn State, continuing a tradition of exciting meetings attended by several hundred participants from universities, public and private sector research organizations and industry. 


The Summer Symposium encourages attendance of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in addition to faculty. Inexpensive registration fees and availability of on-campus accommodations allow for maximal participation by scientists in-training. In addition to two poster sessions, the 2019 symposium will feature at least 24 short talks to be selected from submitted abstracts to allow junior faculty, post docs and graduate students the opportunity to present their work in highly visible settings. A limited number of travel scholarships will be awarded to graduate students submitting abstracts.
