The fourth annual Biochemistry Summer Symposium was held on August 13, 2014, at the Fluvarium. The keynote address was delivered by Dr. Alain Nepveu, Professor of Biochemistry at McGill University. This year, graduate students were competing for the L.M. Stead Oral Competition Award for Best Oral Presentation. This award was generously donated by Dr. Lori Stead and by Dr. René Jacobs, both alumni of the department.
