The importance of sophisticated imaging technology in medical research is difficult to dispute.
When many people think about scientific research, they often picture a lonely professor with a test tube or in front of his computer. But increasingly, that picture is changing.

The 2019 “Tricks, Treats and Science Discoveries: Free Family Fun and Learning Fair” was a success. Over 260 community members – all clad in their best Halloween costumes – filled the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences on Saturday, October 26.


The final workshop of a three-part series, to be held on November 7, 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, will focus on Culturally Responsive Research Engaging the LGBTQ Community.
