The 26th Annual Student Research Forum provided almost 100 graduate studies students with the opportunity to present oral or poster presentations on a wide range of subjects in May.
“Collaboration is an important process in scientific enquiry,” said Allison Fryer, PhD, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies. “This year’s forum was attended by students from across OHSU, and the exchange of ideas and exposure to new methods of investigation is just one of the many benefits of this kind of gathering.”
“The Forum is an important event for students pursuing research careers,” said Annie Powell, a fifth-year PhD student in Cell and Developmental Biology, who co-chaired the Forum with Jean Summerton, a second-year PhD student in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. “Being able to discuss your research in scientific and non-scientific environments is an essential skill to acquire and where better to learn than in front of a supportive audience of peers?”
