Undergraduate Student Symposium
Sunday, February 26, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
This program, sponsored by the Education Committee, introduces undergraduate and high school students to research and career opportunities in biophysics through a seminar on emerging topics in biophysics and the Emily M. Gray Award Lecture. A graduate student panel will discuss their work and the future of biophysics research. A special Graduate & Postdoc Institution Fair and Tour of the Exhibit Hall will follow the symposium.
In addition to registered attendees, undergraduate and high school students who reside within a 75-mile radius of the San Diego Convention Center that are not presenting an abstract may attend these events for free and have access to the entire Meeting on this day. Local students interested in attending the Undergraduate Student Symposium must complete a registration form and submit to the Society office. Registration is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.
