Rong Li to give keynote talk at March 11 grad symposium

Rong Li, a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Cell Biology and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Whiting School of Engineering, will present the keynote talk at the Friday, March 11 graduate student organized symposium for Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology. The event will be held from 12:30 to 4 p.m. in the Sherwood Room in Levering Hall on the Homewood campus of the university.

Twice a year, the graduate students of INBT coordinate a half-day symposium to feature the work of their colleagues. Aside from the faculty keynote address, all talks are given by pre-doctoral candidates or postdocs from INBT affiliate laboratories. This event is free and open to the Hopkins community.
