Thirteen CSU RISE students attended the 13th Annual Biomedical Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) held in Nashville, TN, November 12-16, 2013. They made 12 research presentations at the conference in wide scientific disciplines including biochemistry, physical chemistry, nanostructures, and molecular and cell biology.
Research presentations by CSU RISE students were featured at the 2013 NOBBChE Conference, Indianapolis, IN, October 1 -4.
The last three sessions of the Fall semester Grad school & GRE preparation workshop take place at 2:00 - 5:00 PM on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, December 16, 17, & 18. All RISE students graduating in 2014 or 2015 are expected to attend.
Last summer's nine-week introduction to research skills workshop ("TILT") ended July 26th. All twelve of this year's trainees completed this rigorous workshop. Congratulations to each of them!
