Medical Sciences Baccalaureate Program

Upcoming Events

Below are program events, seminars, conferences and other special events that will be of interest to students in the Baccalaureate Program in Medical Sciences.

Experimental Biology 2019 | Orlando, FL

April 6–9, 2019

Is your research project ready for presentation at the national level? Consider joining other medical sciences students attending Experimental Biology, an annual biomedical research conference comprising over 12,000 scientists from over 25 societies, and spanning physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, and translational science. EB2019 takes place April 6–9 in Orlando, Florida.

Advance planning on your part is necessary. Talk to your faculty research mentor about EB2019 and discuss abstract preparation and travel funding (your estimated expenses will be $1,200–1,400 including airfare, registration, food and lodging), abstract submission ($75), and poster printing ($40). The abstract submission deadline is November 14, 2018. For more information, contact Dr Bryan Mackenzie (Email), Director of Research Experiences.

Columbus State Community College will host the 128th Annual Meeting of The Ohio Academy of Science on Saturday, April 13, 2019. This is a professional scientific meeting that brings together academic and industry professionals, graduate, undergraduate and pre-college students, and others interested in learning more about the research being conducted throughout Ohio. Advance planning on your part is necessary if you would like to attend the conference and present your research.

The abstract submission deadline is November 19, 2018. Abstract submissions will be peer-reviewed and published in The Ohio Journal of Science. Undergraduate students who are in the process of conducting research may submit a Research-in-Progress Summary and will be expected to present their results at the meeting. The cost for submitting a published abstract and presenting at the Annual Meeting is $140 and $90 for professionals and students, respectively. Both of these expenses also cover the cost of membership into the Academy. If you plan to attend, please contact Dr Bryan Mackenzie (Email), Director of Research Experiences.
