Skirball Institute Annual Symposium
The annual research symposium hosted by the Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine features a full slate of talks by renowned research scientists from around the country. Our 2018 symposium, “Mitochondria: The Thread of Life,” took place from 9:00AM to 6:00PM on Friday, September 28, at NYU Langone’s Farkas Auditorium, located at 550 First Avenue in Manhattan.
The symposium is open to the public, and registration is not required.
