Darian gave a talk on his research in the 2023 European Biophysical Societies Association (EBSA) Congress in Stockholm!

Mr. Darian Yang, a soon-to-be 5th year PhD student in the MBSB graduate program, co-mentored by Dr. Lillian Chong and Dr. Angela Gronenborn, attended the 2023 European Biophysical Societies Congress in Stockholm, Sweden, where his abstract was selected for a talk, “Characterization of an Alternate Conformation of the HIV-1 Capsid Protein CTD Dimer using 19F NMR and Weighted Ensemble MD”. It is an important opportunity for graduate students to give talks on their results in such professional conferences and exchange their ideas with the international scientists in their fields. Darian received a IUPAB bursary to attend this conference as the IUPAB sponsored and supports this meeting. Darian: “I enjoyed this meeting quite a lot! It was an incredible opportunity to present in the Stockholm University Aula Magna. I was able to forge strong relationships and have stimulating scientific discussions with people from Europe and all around the world. Besides the science, there was also plenty of social activities built in to provide a well-balanced schedule. Some highlights included kayaking and having a reception/dinner at Stockholm city hall where the Nobel banquets are held.”
