BIMS Program Recognizes Student Awardees at Annual GBS Symposium

BIMS Awards 2022

The Graduate Biosciences Society (GBS) Symposium was held on May 26. The day was filled with a very successful poster session where our students were able to present their compelling research stories (for some for the first time ever and for others for the first time in person in a very long time), terrific talks from the Outstanding Student awardees from each of our PhD programs, a wonderful presentation by the student-invited keynote speaker and, finally, the presentation of the GBS Leadership, Peach and Hungerford awards. Congratulations to the recipients of all of these recognitions.
