The objective of the Biomedical Research Symposium (BMS) is for interested researchers in the UIW community to share their recent, ongoing research results or potential research topics for the purpose of promoting and encouraging research dialogue, collaborations and to create synergy among UIW researchers in relevant fields. Basic scientists with an active research program are encouraged to participate.
Platform Presentations: The oral presentation should include a brief background, research hypothesis, methodology and recent or expected outcomes. Presenters are encouraged to propose possible collaborations to the group. The presentations will be followed by a discussion session. The time allotted to each investigator (15 – 30 minutes) will be determined by the total number of presenters and will be announced once the agenda is finalized. For the purpose of this symposium, the discussion time may be longer than that of a typical research conference.
Poster Session: For researchers unable to be present in the symposium, a poster can be submitted and displayed at the symposium. The poster should contain roughly the same information as the oral presentations.
Non-Presenting Participants: Current and future researchers who are interested in participating, but do not wish to present at this time, are welcome to attend the symposium and join in the discussions.
