Welcome to the 30th annual Midwest Enzyme Chemistry Conference! Continuing a long-standing tradition of excellent science and collegial interactions, MECC 2010 is a one-day conference combining talks and posters at the forefront of enzymology and its interface with biological chemistry.

Everyone is invited. Posters are welcomed from all participants, but are not obligatory. Talks will be chosen from submitted abstracts to populate two morning sessions and one afternoon session, before we repair to the poster hall for a lively scientific discussion and celebratory reception.

Pile in the car, bring your sharp mind and avid curiosity, and be prepared for presentations of international quality and implications, right in our own mid-yard.

NEW on 8 October: The PROGRAM is now available. Download it by clicking the PROGRAM link on the left.

The REGISTRATION page and LUNCH reservations are now closed.

Poster information

In preparing posters, please include a PHOTO of the presenting author, 4 in. x 4 in. (= 10 cm x 10 cm) in a top corner, so that people admiring your poster can find you in the crowd.

Poster board sizes are 48"x48", but please keep in mind that the sides fold inward to provide stability (tri-folds). A few 40'x60' boards are also available.

To minimize confusion, poster boards will be numbered. Please mount your poster at the number-location assigned in the abstract booklet, and display the number on your poster.

POSTERS can be mounted on boards during the lunch break.

Win a copy of Enzyme Kinetics and Mechanism by Cook and Cleland ! One of our sponsors has generously contributed prizes for the best poster from a first-time presenter and the best poster from a returning presenter.


A 'job openings' board will be available at registration; if you have an opening, you can bring copies of your job description to post.

Download the announcement, print it and post it.
