Winners at the 2023 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS)

Academic conferences create an environment for the promotion of undergraduate student achievement. Conferences present students with an important opportunity to present their research to their peers and professors.  They welcome presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all academic fields.  Conference presentations are an important part of the student development as a professional, and offer the chance to receive valuable feedback on their work.  Student presenters explain the methodology and respond to questions about their findings, deepening the understanding of their research.  Conferences also allow student presenters to see what their peers are researching and gain valuable experience to highlight on a resume or graduate school application.

Our students set a new record of awards for outstanding poster presentations this past year!
Tatyana Ali (Biology, Shikuma lab), Alpher Aspiras (Biology, Shikuma lab), Sama Mikhail (Biology, Sussman lab), Scott Monahan (Biology, Sethuraman lab), Gabby Contreras (Chemistry, Huxford/Garmann lab), Nicole Sierra (Chemistry, Sohl lab), Maya Elden (SLHS, Nip lab) and Jesse Laird (San Diego City College/STEM Pathways)
