The Biology Department recently awarded 14 Biology and BMB students travel grant funding towards participation in conferences and meetings around the United States. The Fall 2019 recipients are: Cesar Diaz (Neurobiology), David Guarin (Biochemistry & Molecular Biology), Gianna Grob (Junior), Victoria Jordan (Biochemistry & Molecular Biology), Bryanna Malbouf (Behavioral Biology), Zachary Milot (Biology), Kareemah Ni (Biochemistry & Molecular Biology), Yemi Osayame (Biochemistry & Molecular Biology), Tony Pham (Biochemistry & Molecular Biology), Nicholas Shapiro (Cell Biology, Molecular Biology & Genetics), Konrad Skubisz (Biology), Yalan Wu (Biochemistry & Molecular Biology), Najila Zaman (Biology), and Rose Zhao (Biochemistry & Molecular Biology). Many of these students will be presenting a poster, or giving a talk on their research, to both their peers and leading experts in the field of the meeting. We wish our students the best of luck in their travels and hope that this award will help support a rewarding and memorable experience.

The Biology Department Undergraduate Travel Grant program offers students the opportunity to receive funding for travel and participation in research conferences or other professional development activities that support their education and career path. Financial support for this grant is made possible through annual Giving Day donations. We are very grateful for the generosity of our Giving Day donors in making it possible for us to fund this many students. If you are a current Biology or BMB major interested in applying for our Spring 2020 cycle, the application is due February 29, 2020. If you are interested in donating to the Biology Department, you may do so here.
