As a precautionary measure regarding COVID-19 concerns, INBRE leadership has decided to cancel the 2020 INBRE Program Meeting in conjunction with the Annual JABSOM Biomedical Sciences & Health Disparities Research Symposium (Undergraduate Poster Session) scheduled on Friday, April 17, 2020.

The Biomedical Symposium Registration database will continue to remain open at this time. For those of you who have already submitted an abstract, thank you. All other Associate and Scholar students should still plan on submitting an abstract through the portal at https://redcap-s.jabsom.hawaii.edu/redcap/surveys/?s=YNAFAYYNWJ and completing a poster file before the semester-long program ends. The deadline has been removed to allow flexibility. Constructing a poster will assist the student in satisfying the INBRE Scientific/Reflection Paper requirement, as well as the opportunity to participate in a local presentation, if available.

Volunteers, thank you again for offering your help to judge, mentor, or provide a lab tour. We will keep your contact information handy for when we are seeking volunteers for the next event!

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact inbre@hawaii.edu.
