There’s still time to Register for this Symposium! However, we are no longer accepting abstracts, and we cannot guarantee T-shirts at this time, but we welcome participants to still attend!

We are excited to welcome Dr. Cynthia Wolberger from Johns Hopkins as our Keynote Speaker this year!

Please check out our venue layout. We will be having talks in Rawls 1086 and we are having the poster session and lunch setup in the Krannert Lobby. These buildings are right next to each other.

Also, for attendees interested in our Career Session, we have 6 great panelists from different areas in STEM. Join us on Tuesday, May 7th at the Lafayette Brewing Co. to meet our panelists and play some trivia!

Free t-shirts for attendees this year! Disclaimer: the design does not look like this.
