Penn State Life Science Symposium
Registration is closed.
All life on earth is connected—a timeless concept brought to the forefront of research through international initiatives like One Health and the Human Genome Project.
To help Penn State researchers in the life sciences explore this concept as a collaborative network, a team of graduate students has designed the first Life Sciences Symposium.
- Goal 1: Provide education on Penn State’s life science labs, centers, core facilities, and related research opportunities in order to encourage maximum use of on-campus facilities.
- Goal 2: Foster unique research collaborations and promote networking throughout the University in order to increase funding possibilities and learning experiences.
- Goal 3: Educate upcoming scientists on addressing larger issues while focusing on smaller ones in order to broaden the understanding of life science research.
*Check back periodically for details or updates.
Abstracts 1-32 are in Poster Session I: 12-2pm on Friday, May 20. Abstracts 33-61 are in Poster Session II: 5-6:30pm on Friday, May 20.
This symposium is unique in that it is almost solely coordinated by students. As students, we intuitively understand the needs of our peers and hope that they, along with our faculty, administration, and other Penn State life science researchers, will find this event useful and successful.
Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to the following leaders at Penn State who have been supportive, both academically and financially, to this student endeavor.
