Sophomores, juniors, seniors, postbaccalaureates, and graduate students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), are invited to submit abstracts for the 2014 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Centerin San Antonio, Texas, from Wednesday, November 12, to Saturday, November 15.
ABRCMS gives students the opportunity to present their research through poster and oral presentations and expand their scientific and professional development through innovative sessions, as well as networking opportunities. Students also learn about graduate schools, summer research opportunities, and postdoctoral fellowships by participating in the ABRCMS exhibits program, which includes more than 400 representatives from institutions and organizations throughout the United States.
ABRCMS continues its focus on interdisciplinary science, which draws on multiple research disciplines. Using data analytical approaches, strategies, tools, perspectives, concepts and/or theories from two or more disciplines changes the way we approach problems and allows for a more advanced scientific understanding, which in turn promotes transformative discoveries. In presenting their projects, students should consider (i) which scientific disciplines are brought together by their research, (ii) what research methods and/or data analytic approaches are used from other scientific disciplines, (iii) how scientists from other departments or scientific disciplines are involved in one’s understanding about science and development as scientists, and (iv) how one’s scientific findings may impact other disciplines.
