GBS4 is the monthly sudent seminar series (for students by students). It is a 20-25 minute talk accompanied by free lunch. We try to vary the speakers and select students from various BIMS programs. It is a great, informal setting to present your data and get feedback about your research. If you are interested in presenting this year, contact Jeff Teoh (jjt8vb).

Spring Symposium

March 21, 2016

Each year the Graduate Biosciences Society sponsors the annual Spring Research Symposium. It is an all day celebration of graduate research featuring oral presentations, career seminars, research posters, contests and a prominent keynote address.


A much anticipated event at the Symposium is the presentation of the Michael J. Peach Outstanding Graduate Student Award and Jill E. Hungerford Prize in Biomedical Sciences. This prestigious stipend award recognizes the accomplishments of our most talented and creative senior students, and has become increasingly competitive each year. (See your BIMS program chair for nomination procedures)


The Spring Research Symposium is a terrific way to share your current research with your colleagues and peers in the Biomedical Sciences.  Make sure to keep an eye on your email and our Facebook page for updates!
