August 15th- Summer Student Research Symposium (9-2pm)

As part of the requirement as a Summer Student Awardee, students are required to present the results of their summer research project during the "Summer Student Research Symposium". Each individual is instructed to prepare an 8-10 min PowerPoint presentation for the group regarding their project and the results of their summer research project.  The focus is on the transdisciplinary aspects of the project and results, as well as what the Trainees have taken away from their experience in the program.
