ECR Symposium 2023

Exterior of Durham University College Castle

Our ECR Symposia provide an opportunity for ECRs working in research into physical biology to get together and to share their research. Although the symposia are primarily aimed at ECRs, we welcome everyone with an interest in biophysical sciences to join in the lively discussions and questions.

 

Our 2023 Symposium

13 January 2023, University College

Our 2023 symposium is an in-person, one day event and is free to attend. The event will feature short talks (15 minutes) and key-note talks (30 minutes) and posters selected from abstracts. There will also be one dedicated hybrid session to connect our wider international community. 

The event will be held at University College (Durham Castle) and will finish with a Symposium Dinner in the Bishop’s Suite.

The 2020 Symposium

Our very first research symposium was held at the end of July 2020. The symposium was held virtually and attracted more than 50 participants from 45 different institutions, 13 different countries and 3 continents. To mark the occasion the 2020 ECR Symposium’s keynote talk was the Howard Prize Lecture. This was given by Professor Silvia Marchesan (University of Trieste) “Heterochiral Peptide Assembly: Entry in Wonderland through the Looking-Glass” an Alice in Wonderland themed journey through peptide chemistry. Below is a screenshot of some of the symposium's attendees.
