2017 Postdoc Research Symposium
The 2017 Postdoctoral Research Symposium was held on Wednesday, May 24th. We had 56 postdoctoral scholars from NC State, UNC Chapel Hill, Duke University, and NIEHS present posters on their research.
Our guests included industry partners, faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students from across the Triangle, including Dara Wilson-Grant from UNC-Chapel Hill who served as our Keynote Speaker.
