acs boston update 0: sunday and monday

August 21, 2007 at 4:37 pm | | conferences, science community, seminars

Because a bunch of my family was in town, I missed the first two days of ACS Boston. I thought it would be better to see some friends and family whom I rarely see than hear about science that I listen to everyday. After a few days, that decision starts to feel like a dumb move. (Just kidding, Dad.)

So I missed some talks I was excited about:

  • Steve Quake
  • Arne Gennerich
  • Alice Ting (but W.E. gave me a good synopsis—some cool stuff!)
  • Paul Barbara
  • Jim Spudich
  • Erdal Toprak

I’ve already seen recent talks by the most of the other speakers on Sunday and Monday, so I’m not as sad about missing those other great talks (e.g. Yildz, Zare, Alivisados, Dickson, etc.).

lube_gears.jpgI’ve been scanning the Technical Program for ACS Boston, and I’m super excited! Should be some great talks in the single-molecule biophysics field: days and days of fun!

┬áIn all my reading of the program, this session seems the most … well, erotic? (At least the talks after the intermission, depending on what you’re into.) These talks put the “sex” in Technical Section.

Is anyone going to ACS Boston? August 19-23. In Boston. Massachusetts. New England. USA. Earth. Universe. Etc.

I’ll be there, in the “Single Molecule Spectroscopy, Imaging and Manipulation of Biomolecular Systems” sessions. Paul at ChemBark thinks he’ll go.

Who wants to hang and party? Should we make a meeting time/place?

I’m here at the Gordon Conference on Single Molecule Approaches To Biology in New London, NH. When I get back to CA, I’ll get back to writing the blog…
