The First Annual Stem Cells in Regenerative Medicine Symposium took place on June 8-9, 2017. The symposium is a showcase for the excellence our students. The two-day event fostered interactions between faculty and students from diverse backgrounds - biology, medicine, bioengineering and Roswell Park Cancer Institute - enriching our research efforts in the use of stem cells for disease treatment.
The poster sessions included 18 participants, along with lunch for guests and judges. Awards for best poster were evaluated based on student presenter communication skills and showcased the high quality of research.
