- Our Impact
29th Annual Biology Graduate Student Symposium
(2) to allow students to present research ideas or results and to get feedback
(3) to provide an opportunity to give a scientific presentation in a relatively stress-free environment
We especially encourage presentations that are geared toward a broad scientific audience that emphasize communication, your discoveries, and your passion for science! Simply put, this is a symposium organized by graduate students for graduate students. Sometimes, it’s all too easy to be surrounded by people who are doing amazing things at OSU and not have a clue what they are up to in their research hours. BGSS helps bring us together.
This year, we have the great pleasure of hosting Dr. Jim Estes, Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Dr. Estes’ research program focuses on the ecology of coastal marine communities, particularly trophic interactions between vertebrate predators and their prey. His accomplishments are too numerous to mention here, but let’s just say our humble venue is a far cry from the national academy of sciences. We are really looking forward to his presentation and appreciate his contribution to BGSS 2016! For more information on Dr. Jim Estes and his lab group click here.
