Halloween Dance

Come celebrate Halloween with a dance sponsored by the GSC and Geisel. Costumes highly encouraged. More information will follow.

2nd Annual Celebration of Biomedical Research at Dartmouth

This poster session will highlight research in all the science graduate programs under the School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, and biomedical-related research labs throughout Dartmouth. All are welcome to attend and/or present!

We hope to further engender a sense of community throughout the faculty, postdocs and graduate students who do research here, as well as foster potential collaborations. As many graduate students will be joining us this fall, this is also an opportunity to demonstrate the strength and diversity of biomedical research at Dartmouth, particularly for students seeking rotations and thesis labs. Poster presenters will be given 5 minutes to deliver their poster to judges, and top posters will be awarded either an iPad, $100 gift card to Simon Pearce, and $25 gift card to Starbucks. If poster presenters do not want their poster to be judged, then they will be entered into a raffle where they can win other awesome prizes. Food and beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) will be provided.

As the date for CBRaD is fast approaching, we would encourage all graduate students, postdocs and faculty interested in presenting their own research or their lab’s research to sign up on the Google spreadsheet linked directly below. We also have a spreadsheet for attendees below that. Please sign up by October 12th as we will need a final headcount for posters, food, and beverages. Poster session sign up here. To RSVP for the event click here:

We hope you all will participate in CBRaD. Please email any questions to Gail.P.Egner@dartmouth.edu, or the PEMM student reps Stephanie.Getz.GR@dartmouth.edu or Itzel.Y.Rojas.GR@dartmouth.edu
