The 108th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, June 2008

Three BMS students presented their results at this national meeting in Boston: grad student Katie Neely and undergrads Brandon Albright and Maggie Zurowski. This meeting was big, real big, with thousands of posters and hundreds of talks, and we were the only ones with the word "pimple" in our presentation. Here are links to the abstract and poster.

The 107th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, May 2007

One BMS graduate student (Roberto Padua) traveled to Toronto, Canada for this year's ASM General Meeting. Ask Roberto about foreign travel, the passport, the strange currency (they've got a $2 coin that everyone really uses), and the vastness of the meeting. There were thousands of posters and hundreds of talks in only four days! Here's Max and Roberto's abstract and poster.

The Experimental Biology (FASEB) Annual Meeting, April - May 2007

Three BMS graduate students presented posters at the meeting in Washington DC this year. Ask them what it's like to attend a meeting with over 10,000 other research scientists! Or see for yourself--here's the preliminary program listing for about 7000 poster abstracts! To save time, the BMS poster abstracts are listed here.

The 61st Annual Eastern Colleges Science Conference, April 2007

The 2007 ECSC gave many groups of CCSU students the chance to display their experimental findings and discuss research with students from fifteen other Northeastern colleges and universities. The host institution, the College of Mount Saint Vincent, still displays some information about the meeting on their website. Links to the presentations by BMS students are shown below.
