The Division of Graduate Medical Sciences is pleased to invite you to our 2nd Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium.
The symposium held on Friday, August 5, 2011 was developed to showcase independent research projects accomplished by a distinct cohort of students during their 10 week summer internship. Summer interns are aspiring biomedical scientists. They are mentored by faculty from the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences and participate in daily research and lab activities as well as weekly professional development seminars. We are currently accepting applications for Summer, 2012.
For more information on the program please see our Undergraduate Summer Research Page
GMS welcomes students in the Summer Undergraduate Research Program. This is a rigorous ten week summer program for undergraduate students interested in achieving a Ph.D. in biomedical research, especially those students from groups underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. The program starts May 31, 2011 and will continue through August 5, 2011.
Nadia Krasner, a PhD student in the Graduate Program in Medical Nutrition Sciences, has been selected to receive a $5,000 fellowship through the American Society of Nutrition. The award recognizes Ms. Krasner’s excellence in her proposed project Does GLP-1 Mediated Activation of AMPK have an Anti-Inflammatory Effect in Vascular Endothelium.
All graduate students in a degree-granting program at Boston University who are also engaged in research in any area of science, engineering, mathematics, medicine or health are invited to participate in BU Science and Engineering Day.
The symposium will take place on Wednesday, March 23, 2011 in Metcalf Hall at the George Sherman Union.
This event is intended to honor and celebrate research by our graduate students and has been held at Boston University for more than ten years. During that time the number and quality of research presentations has grown enormously, as has the number of awards presented.
The abstract submission form for the 2011 Boston University Science and Engineering Day is now online.
The abstract submission deadline is 11:59 PM EST on Monday, February 28, 2011. Upon submission, students are responsible for corresponding with their advisors to ensure approval of their abstract by 11:59 PM EST on Monday, March 7, 2011. Abstracts that are not approved by the deadline, regardless of the reason, will not have a designated location at the event.
Registration for the 2/10 and 3/11 sessions of the Program in Responsible Conduct of Research is ongoing for all graduate students & post-doctoral fellows for program. Please review the following links for further information on registration and upcoming training classes.
