Representatives from several Case Western Reserve University departments and schools attended the annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students in Indianapolis Nov. 14-17.
The representatives were from the College of Arts and Sciences’ biology and chemistry departments, the School of Medicine’s Biomedical Sciences Training Program and Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences, and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.
The conference attracts more than 2,000 students in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) from underrepresented groups. Attendees have the opportunity to present their research, participate in professional development sessions and network with graduate programs.
CWRU faculty and students staffed a row of five booths in the exhibit hall and interacted with hundreds of highly qualified prospective graduate students over the course of the conference.
