Lehigh Valley Molecular and Cell Biology Society’s annual symposium will be held on Muhlenberg’s campus on Tuesday, April 16 from 4:30-8:30pm. Registration will be required and additional details should be available by February 2019.
Registration and abstract submission is available here.
The Lehigh Valley Molecular and Cell Biology Society (LVMCBS) was established in 2016, with the goal of promoting open communication and facilitating collaboration between faculty and undergraduate students interested in molecular life sciences at regional colleges and universities in Eastern Pennsylvania. Our annual symposium promotes student-driven research by providing a forum outside of their home institutions for students to disseminate their data or research plan while simultaneously learning how others approach scientific problems. This opportunity for faculty and students from LVAIC schools and other local institutions facilitates cross-talk that can not only increase student learning and professional development but potentially foster collaborations between researchers at different colleges and universities. In addition, having the opportunity to engage with faculty from other institutions should allow students to become aware of courses offered at other LVAIC schools and potentially boost the participation in our cross-registration agreement. This forum may also allow our students to meet potential graduate student mentors from LVAIC and other area universities that offer graduate programs.
Muhlenberg College is hosting this year’s event on April 16, 2019. Our speaker will be Dr. James R. Broach, Chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Penn State Hershey and Professor Emeritus of Princeton University.
