Colleges in the Community Day

Sunday, February 28, 2016 11:30 am–5:00 pm
Los Angeles Convention Center

This full day of activities for local college students and their instructors kicks off with an Undergraduate Student Pizza “Breakfast” where participants will have an opportunity to socialize and network with their peers and members of the Biophysical Society’s Education Committee in a fun and relaxed environment. Next, students will have a chance to win prizes during a scavenger hunt designed to promote learning and interaction with researchers. Undergraduates will also have a unique opportunity to ask graduate students, post-docs, and leading biophysicists about training and career opportunities in biophysics and related fields during this interactive Q & A session – come prepared to find out about the course of study that biophysicists undertake, what it means to be a biophysicist, and how biophysicists make important discoveries. Finally, students will have access to an exclusive tour of the exhibit hall where they will view special demonstrations featuring cutting edge instrumentation producing breakthroughs in structural biology and other areas.

Local undergraduate students within a 50-mile radius of the Los Angeles Convention Center who are not presenting an abstract or listed on an abstract being presented at this meeting may register for this event and gain FREE access to all Annual Meeting sessions on Sunday, February 28, 2016.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: February 5, 2016 Space is limited, pre-registration is required.
