ABRCMS 2012

During November 7-10 the twelfth Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) took place in San Jose, California. ABRCMS is the largest professional conference for minority students in science, engineering and mathematics.

As in previous years, a large number of Puerto Rican students attended the conference. Ciencia Puerto Rico was not able to attend this year but we received news that a large number of students from Puerto Rican received awards.

Through this blog post we wish to acknowledge and extend our congratulations to the awardees. Thanks for representing Puerto Rico so well!

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student, we encourage you to participate next year in ABRCMS or the SACNAS conference. These type of events help develop presentation skills and strengthen your confidence discussing your research with other students and scientists. They are also a great opportunity to begin planning which graduate programs to apply to in the future ...
