The SDCSB’s Quarterly Systems-to-Synthesis Meeting: Fall 2016

Thursday, October 13, 2016, from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm

Meeting Rooms on Fifteen, 15th Floor of Building 1, Village West

The SDCSB’s Quarterly Systems-to-Synthesis Meeting will feature short talks by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from labs throughout the SDCSB followed by a happy hour.

No Show Policy

While we do not charge a fee to attend this event, these and our other events would be unsustainable unless those unable to attend cancelled their reservations no later than 2 days before the event. A no-show can limit your ability to book our events in the future. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.


Parking is available in Lot P357, which is just east of The Village and adjacent to the Rady School of Management. From the 5 freeway, exit Genesee Avenue and head west.
