The day-long event begins at 9:30 am in the Senior Center at the Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza with presentations by CHORI's up and coming post-doctoral scientists. Oral presentations will be followed by Q&A poster sessions over lunch with these junior scientists about their research and what they are doing to continue the long tradition of innovation and cutting edge research at CHORI.

The afternoon will kick off with an introduction from CHORI executive director and senior scientist, Alexander Lucas, PhD, who will provide a brief overview of CHORI's journey from just a handful of researchers to a multi-million-dollar research enterprise.

DeRisi, PhD, of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at UC San Francisco; Jay B. Hollick, PhD, of the Department of Plant & Microbial Biology at UC Berkeley; and Helen H.
