Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of BUILD Trainees and Interns with a week of science presentations during the first ever Virtual BUILD Research Symposium. Due to COVID-19, students will share poster presentations and talks asynchronously using VoiceThread from Jan. 19th–25th. Presentations will be available at the following link: https://voicethread.com/myvoice/browse/threadbox/4732
Students in the BUILD Trainee Program (BTP) program will be presenting on the Microbiome project, which introduced them to formulating scientific questions and analyzing and visualizing data. Students in the BUILD a Bridge to STEM Summer Internship will be presenting on the authentic research projects they worked on under the mentorship of UMBC faculty. Both of these programs engage students in research to help prepare them for a career in the biomedical sciences. For most students, these activities are their first research experience, and an essential part of this training is the opportunity to share their work in a formalized setting.
We encourage you to use the VoiceThread link to view and engage with the Symposium. Please note that you do not need to have a VoiceThread account to view the posters or listen to the talks. You will need to register or log-in to ask questions. If you have a UMBC account, you just need to log-in to your UMBC account and you will already be registered into VoiceThread. Our BUILD Trainees and Affiliates will be available to answer your posted questions through Monday, January 25th.
