BIOCHEMICAL TOPICAL GROUP
The Biochemical Topical Group collaborates with the Biochemical Pharmacology Discussion Group of The New York Academy of Sciences to sponsor 8 symposia per year.
The topics and speakers are selected from Proposals submitted to the Steering Committee.
The 8 receiving the most votes constitutes the next year's Program. The scientist who suggests the topic then chairs that meeting.
The symposia are held at The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, and include 4-6 speakers, usually from 1:00 - 5:00 pm.
A coffee break in the middle enables interactions. Two symposia may be full-day.
We represent a diverse group of scientists with an interest in biochemistry, molecular biology, biomedical research, and related areas. Members are from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies,
and university and medical center research facilities across the Eastern United States. Our purpose is to bring together diverse institutions and communities, industrial and academic,
to share new and relevant information at the frontiers of research and development.
