We are looking forward to welcoming all guests at Caltech on April 6th. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Southern California Geobiology Symposium is an annual student-run event designed to bring geobiologists together to discuss current research and build local collaborations. It is an opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students and post-docs to present geobiological research in the form of oral and poster presentations. The topics presented span various disciplines including geology, geochemistry, astrobiology, microbiology, oceanography, paleobiology/-ecology and environmental sciences. Conference registration is open to all geobiological researchers in CA and neighboring states.


We thank the Agouron Institute, the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences at Caltech and  the Center for Environmental Microbial Interactions at Caltech for supporting the Geobiology Symposium 2019.
