    Accompanying Guests
    In addition, accompanying guests are more than welcome to join us for other events on the social program including the BBQ, lunches and mixers. A small additional fee will apply and children can also be catered for at reasonable prices. Please contact us to make appropriate arrangements.

    Please note that when submitting your abstract, you will be required to supply proof of registration (e.g. a payment receipt from Register Now). A hallmark of the East Coast Protein Meeting is that only PhD students and Postdoctoral researchers are considered for oral presentation. For this reason, more senior researchers are welcome and encouraged to register but are not permitted to submit abstracts for consideration.

    This event is a joint initiative of the Sydney Protein Group and the Queensland Protein Group, who are both special interest groups of the ASBMB.
