2023 Biomedical Symposium
The INBRE Program Meeting and Biomedical Sciences & Health Disparities Symposium held on April 21, 2023, was a great success with students expanding upon their academic activities. We had nearly 180 total attendees! A special “Thank you” to all the volunteers who contributed to the success of the program.
Students, we hope you enjoyed the experience of networking with your peers, listening to the discussion by the panel of professionals, and presenting your poster. We had many faculty comments about the impressive quality of research and the manner of professional presentation – INBRE students you did yourself proud!
