Butcher Symposium
The Butcher Symposium returns Nov. 11 to the Westin Hotel in Westminster, gathering University of Colorado faculty who collaborate – or are interested in collaborating – with the Biofrontiers Institute and others across the system.

Deadline for registration is Oct. 21.

The annual symposium was launched in 2002 with two primary goals: to bring together scientists from across the CU system to catalyze important new collaborations, and to openly share data and progress being made on research funded by previous rounds of Butcher Seed Grant funding.

The event is open to CU-affiliated faculty who are either collaborating with or interested in collaborating with faculty associated with the Biofrontiers Institute (formerly CIMB), or across departments and campuses at CU.

All scientific (faculty) attendees are asked to prepare and present a scientific poster about their work and scientific interests, particularly if they plan to apply for a Butcher Seed Grant.

The full agenda will be available online after registration has closed.
