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, poster boards, program pamphlet, online PDF booklet (for participants only), 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) nonprofit educational organization named “Friends of the Midwest Enzyme Chemistry Conference, Inc.”  Donations made to this entity in support of the MECC are tax-deductible for individuals and corporations.
