Outreach students to present research
On July 30, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) Office of Outreach will host a poster presentation session for students participating in summer outreach programs. The session will display research by 47 students from across the country who participated in the Health Science Center’s McNair Scholars, Historically Black Colleges and Universities Collaborative Summer Training Program in Prostate Cancer, SMART (Summer Multicultural Advanced Research Training) and SPHERE (Summer Public Health Education and Research Experience) programs on campus this summer.
A panel of judges made up of GSBS and School of Public Health (SPH) students will select the top poster presentations in each program. Prizes will be awarded at a ceremony immediately following the poster presentation session. Faculty, staff and students are invited to attend the events.
Poster session schedule:
Session 1 SMART/SPHERE
8 - 9:30 am
Session 2 McNair/HBCU
10:30 am - noon
The Health Science Center’s grant-funded summer outreach programs are made possible by the continued support of these faculty mentors:
