This year the event will include two breakthrough discovery symposia designed to showcase the level of talent and diversity of our junior and senior faculty whose work is worthy of recognition for its innovation and significance. In addition, there will be a Graduate Student Education Committee sponsored poster competition and a Postdoctoral Fellow symposium designed to highlight the work of our graduate and post-graduate trainees.
