Student Summer Symposium

MDI Biological Laboratory Summer Fellows will showcase their 10-Week research projects by presenting talks and posters.


Students in the Summer Fellowship Program will share their 10-week research findings by presenting talks, posters, and producing research papers. The Symposium is the culmination of the hard work of students, their faculty mentors and lab groups, all of whom have made this a successful summer of research and learning.
