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!
In agreement with our mission to help train future generations of Puerto Rican scientists, on September 24, 2012 CienciaPR held a symposium entitled "I want to be a scientist ... Now what do I do?”. Over one hundred undergraduate and graduate students from 15 universities throughout Puerto Rico attended the symposium, which also involved the participation of professors and researchers from various institutions. The event was held at the Medical Sciences Campus of the University of Puerto Rico.
