The Thirty-First Annual Biochemical Engineering Symposium was held on September 7 and 8, 2001, at Kansas State University. The program included 10 oral presentations and 3 posters; however the paper by Boyack and Gilcrease was not presented because the presenter was ill and unable to come. Some of the papers describe work that is in progress while others describe completed projects. Many of the authors intend to submit their work for publication elsewhere in a more complete form. A listing of those who attended is given below. The activities began on Friday evening with an indoor picnic because of rain and wind.
