The MCDB Graduate Student Symposium is a biennial event held since 1979 that brings together leading researchers in both academic fields and cutting-edge biotechnology enterprises for a day of stimulating talks and interaction between members of the national and local scientific communities. The symposium is entirely student-organized, and as such, all the planning and fundraising is conducted solely by graduate students.
The most recent symposium:
Titled: "From the headlines to the lab: how emerging issues steer research."
