In order to keep the Midwest Enzyme Chemistry Conference accessible to as many as possible, and in particular graduate students and post-docs, we do not charge a registration fee.  By taking advantage of low cost venues at the host academic institutions, our costs generally involve logistical support (website, posters, program booklets, etc.), coffee breaks, and a reception during the poster session.  We, therefore, depend on the generosity of individuals, companies, and professional organizations for financial support.  The MECC is supported by a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization named “Friends of the Midwest Enzyme Chemistry Conference, Inc.” (fMECC). Donations made to the fMECC in support of the MECC are tax-deductible for individuals and corporations.
