The Summit on Systems Biology will be held at The Jefferson Hotel in historic Richmond, Virginia. Opened in 1895, The Jefferson Hotel is one of only 22 hotels to carry both the Mobil Five Star and the AAA Five Diamond ratings. The Jefferson comes replete with rich tapestries, antique replica furniture, embellished faux-marble columns, a 70-foot high ceiling with a stained-glass skylight, and a magnificent sweeping staircase hauntingly similar to the one in Gone With the Wind. A national historic landmark and a charter member of Historic Hotels of America, The Jefferson has been completely renovated to enhance the original beauty of her distinct architecture.
