OHSU hosted the "Chemical Biology and Physiology Conference 2019" in December. This meeting, organized by Carsten Schultz and colleagues, is held every other year. This year, the line-up of speakers was truly impressive. Keynote talks were by Ben Cravatt, Laura Kiessling, and Tom Muir. One of the Beatty group's favorite talks was by Alison Tebo (Sorbonne Universite, France). We presented two posters, one on our VIP tags and another on Sam Levine's Mtb probes. Such a great way to wrap up the year!
