The NESS Virtual Oral Presentations took place on Wednesday, June 24 and Thursday, June 25, 2020. They were a huge success! Eight students/fellows selected to make an oral presentation for the April 2020 New England Science Symposium, presented their research virtually over two nights to a panel of judges and a viewing audience. Three individuals were awarded Ruth and William Silen, M.D. Awards.
Great job to all presenters and congratulations to the award recipients!
The NESS Virtual Facilitated Research Discussions took place on Wednesday, July 22 and Thursday, July 23, 2020. It was a tremendous success! Out of 242 students selected to make poster presentations for the April 2020 New England Science Symposium, 103 students participated in the virtual facilitated research discussions. Each presenter made a 2-3 minute elevator pitch of their research virtually over two nights to a panel of advisors for peer feedback as well as connection and mentoring.
We want to congratulate all the presenters in both the Oral and Virtual Facilitated Research Discussions! We hope you will submit an abstract for the 2021 New England Science Symposium!
The New England Science Symposium (NESS), established in 2002, provides a forum for postdoctoral fellows; medical, dental and graduate students; post-baccalaureates; college and community college students (particularly for African-American, Hispanic/Latino and American Indian/Alaska Native individuals) to share their biomedical and health-related research activities through oral or poster presentations, to engage in discussions related to career development in the sciences, to exchange ideas and to expand their professional networks.
Awards for outstanding oral and poster presentations in various disciplines and categories are: Ruth and William Silen, M.D. Awards, Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center Awards, Postdoctoral Awards, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Department of Neonatology Award, TACS BIO Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Award, American Cancer Society Awards, and Predicine Translational Research Award.
