Indiana Convention Center
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. EB2021 takes place May 1–4 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Advance planning on your part is necessary. Talk to your faculty research mentor about EB2021 and discuss abstract preparation and travel funding (your estimated expenses will be $800–1,000 including travel, registration, food and lodging), abstract submission ($75), and poster printing ($40). The abstract submission deadline (to be announced) is in mid-November 2020, so plan on having your data analyzed and abstract written by then.
