Incoming Graduate School of Biomedical Science students will check out posters representing the many laboratories and researchers at UMass Medical School on Thursday, Sept. 6, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Faculty Conference Room and the Medical School new lobby. Students will be on the lookout for interesting research or an intriguing laboratory where they could spend a two- or three-month rotation, while researchers will be looking to fill openings in their laboratories for researchers-in-training.
Part of the GSBS curriculum involves two to five rotations over the first year of study, giving students a chance to learn the principles of scientific inquiry and the concepts and techniques of several different scientific fields. By the end of their first year, students must commit to a laboratory and begin focusing on a dissertation area.
Hear GSBS Dean Anthony Carruthers, PhD, professor of biochemistry & molecular pharmacology and microbiology & physiological systems, talk about the importance of this event in a video from last year’s poster session.
