Description

This series of Annual Biochemical Engineering Symposia was started in 1971 by Professor Larry E. Erickson of Kansas State University and Peter J. Reilly, then of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. It is designed for graduate students and occasionally undergraduates and postdoctoral fellows to present the results of their research and directions of their future work to audiences not so familiar as those at their home institutions but not so seemingly intimidating as those at national professional meetings. It also serves as a vehicle for those engaged in similar lines of research to become acquainted with each other and with each other's work. To that end, discussions both during the meeting. and at social events attached to it are encouraged. To improve students' skills in writing articles, in general those that follow were first drafted by the students who presented the work reported in them. The 33 symposia have rotated among the University of Colorado, Boulder; Colorado State University; Iowa State University; Kansas State University; the University of Missouri, Columbia; the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; and the University of Oklahoma. This 33rd Annual Biochemical Engineering Symposium took place on April 24, 2004 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with Professor Michael M. Meagher as host. It should be noted that the 32"d Symposium was held on October 5, 2002. There was no symposium in 2003. Therefore symposium numbering is now in line with the starting year (1971 + 33 symposia = 2004 ). Fourteen papers were delivered orally at the symposium and there were a number of posters. These Proceedings present articles from nearly all the oral presentations and from several posters.
