The GGB Annual Graduate Student Research Symposium takes place each year during the fall quarter. Our GGB Graduate Student Association organizes and executes the day with presentations from third year continuing GGB students and postdoctoral fellows. Also, there is a poster session open to undergraduate and GGB graduate students. This is a great opportunity to display the breath of research and accomplishments of our students. The symposium also serves as a welcome to our new students.
The 2023 Annual Research Symposium will take place on November 20, 2023 in the Genomics Auditorium.
