CBM 2020 Summer Workshops Cancelled!

It is with much regret that we are announcing the cancellation of all summer 2020 workshops.

These cancellations include:

  • The Science and Ethics of Genome Editing, Cohort 3, June 22-26
  • 3D Printing for the Bioscience Classroom, June 29-July1
  • The Science and Ethics of Genome Editing, Cohort 2, in Boston, July 6-9
  • Modeling the Molecular World, July 27-31

Our intention is to offer these same workshops in the summer of 2021. The exact dates will change a little. We will set those dates and publish them on our web site later this summer.

For those of you who have already paid course fees and housing costs for, we will be happy to roll these payments forward to next summer’s course. But of course, if you would rather have us refund these payments, we will be happy to do so. Please let us know if you want the refund.

We have been agonizing over this decision for several weeks. In the end, we feel this is the right decision. But in the midst of all the uncertainty that everyone is experiencing right now, we hope this announcement will allow you to focus on what is most important… keeping yourself and those around you safe.

We look forward to working with all of you next summer. And in the meantime, watch the CBM website and our Facebook page. In lieu of running summer courses, we plan to post a variety of videos and molecular stories on these pages. Maybe all of this craziness will finally get us to create these digital resources that we have been promising you for some time now. In the next day or so, you will see an interesting video addressing everyone’s current topic. . . the cornona virus. Stay tuned and be well.

Stay tuned and be well.

Teacher Workshops

At the Center for BioMolecular Modeling (CBM), teachers come first. We work closely with talented science educators from across the US to create innovative instructional materials that make the molecular world real for students. We host a collection of professional development courses that introduce teachers to these materials and provide them with the experience necessary to confidently use them in their classroom.

Summer Workshops

The CBM offers a collection of exciting summer on-campus workshops where teachers interact directly with our full collection of resources.
