Scientific Discourse at the Institute

In July, Stowers Associate Investigator Julia Zeitlinger, PhD, co-organized an American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) Special Symposium at the Stowers Institute. This international meeting brought some of the brightest scientific minds to Kansas City for a four-day meeting focused on evolution and core processes in gene expression. More than fifty speakers from a variety of research institutions presented their scientific data and inspired a wide range of discussion topics.

“Hosting this kind of gathering serves several purposes,” shares Zeitlinger. “Beyond the opportunities it offers to advance a scientific dialogue, it showcases the Stowers Institute and the amazing facilities we have, and it further promotes Kansas City as an established yet growing hub for the biosciences.”
