The 31st Midwest Enzyme Chemistry Conference
October 15, 2011 at The University of Chicago

Now in its 31st year, the Midwest Enzyme Chemistry Conference (MECC) has provided a convenient, inexpensive, and invaluable forum for scientific exchange and collegial interactions among researchers working at the forefront of enzymology and its interface with biomedical sciences.  This one-day conference is held annually on a rotating basis at academic institutions in the Chicago area.  The MECC attracts academics and industrial researchers from 11 states in the Midwest, ranging from Kentucky to Minnesota and Ohio to Nebraska.  This year’s MECC will be held at the University of Chicago, October 15, 2011, with Professor Marvin Makinen serving as the Local Arrangements Chair.  Everyone is invited. Posters are welcomed from all participants, but are not obligatory.  The oral presentations for the MECC are selected from the submitted abstracts and feature junior faculty, post-docs, and graduate students. There will be two morning sessions and one afternoon session, before a lively scientific discussion and celebratory reception at the concluding poster session.
