Lehigh Valley Molecular & Cell Biology Annual Meeting
April 24, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Lehigh Valley Molecular and Cell Biology Society (LVMCBS) is a year-old organization created to promote open communication and facilitate collaboration between faculty and undergraduate students at regional colleges and universities in Eastern Pennsylvania. Historically, there has been a lack of molecular and cell biology focused local and regional conferences that allow students to present their research and discuss science with their peers. This society seeks to fill that void with an annual poster session and keynote talk on a topic of interest to the field. The goal of LVMCBS is to promote student-driven research by providing a forum outside of their home institutions to disseminate their data or research plan while simultaneously learning how others approach scientific problems. Through LVMCBS, students will have an opportunity to present their work and interact with students and faculty from other institutions. In addition, this allows students to see how others approach scientific problems, develop hypotheses, and test these hypotheses.
This year, the LVMCBS will host its third annual poster session and keynote on April 24, 2018 at DeSales University.
