AMBGC 2022!

The Experimental Medicine Graduate Students’ Society (EMGSS) is thrilled to announce the official launch of the 22nd Annual McGill Biomedical Graduate Conference (AMBGC) and invites abstract submissions for oral presentations, short talks, and graphical abstracts! AMBGC is free for all attendees as it remains a conference for students by students that provides graduate students engaged in biomedical research across Montreal the opportunity to present and discuss their work in an encouraging environment. To ensure the safety of all our participants, this event will take place in a completely virtual format via the cellphone/desktop apps Whova and Zoom on Tuesday, March 22, 2022Please see below the abstract submission guidelines.  

We are excited to announce Dr. Pamela Silver as our Keynote Speaker, who is an Elliot T. and Onie H. Adams Professor of Biochemistry and Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Silver is a distinguished and decorated scientist at the forefront of systems biology and biological engineering. As a postdoctoral fellow, she helped discover one of the first nuclear localization signals within GAL4 in yeast. Dr. Silver’s current research interests are extremely diverse and involve leveraging synthetic biology systems for medical applications. This includes using computational methods to create synthetic therapeutic proteins that mirror natural systems and avoid the unwanted off-target effects of traditional small molecule therapeutics. For her scientific contributions, Dr. Silver was recently elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
