For this CSULB BUILD article, I email interviewed several BUILD scholars who attended ABRCMS 2017.
“ABRCMS is a great first conference experience for anyone who has never attended one,” said BUILD Year One Scholar Rhea Mehta.
“My experience at ABRCMS was amazing,” said Wendy Miranda, a Year One Scholar. “I liked how there are many students from all parts of the U.S. and various backgrounds coming together for research.”
At the beginning of November 2017, CSULB BUILD Scholars and Fellows had the opportunity to attend the 17th Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Scientists (ABRCMS) in Phoenix, Ariz. For many of them, this was either their first professional conference or the first time presenting their research at a professional conference.
