- Our Impact
31st Annual Biology Graduate Student Symposium
The Old World Deli, Corvallis, OR
(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. Selina Heppell, Department Head and Professor in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University. Dr. Heppell's lab works on marine ecology, conservation, and resource management issues in Oregon and around the world. She will be discussing her career trajectory and how she has navigated academia as the topic of his keynote presentation at BGSS 2018. We are really looking forward to her presentation and appreciate her contribution to BGSS 2018! For more information on Dr. Selina Heppell and her lab group click here.
