Call for Abstracts

We want this symposium to feature a diverse set of topics to display the importance of multidisciplinary research and to highlight novel or unique research approaches. The poster session is open to all graduate students, postdocs, PIs, and staff scientists. There will be 6 trainee talks, each 20 minutes in length. MiBio/iBGS will award a small “speaker honoraria” to the trainees selected for talks. The abstract submission deadline has passed.
