DSAC Annual Research Symposium 2014

Division Student Advisory Council (DSAC) Annual Research Symposium 

The 11th Annual DSAC Research Symposium was held on Friday, January 10, 2014 at the Emory University School of Medicine Education Building

Welcome & Special Thanks

The GDBBS Division Student Advisory Council (DSAC) would first like to express our sincerest gratitude to all of the participants-students, faculty, and post-docs- who made this 11th Annual DSAC Student Research Symposium possible.
Our deepest gratitude goes to the Graduate Student Council (GSC) for funding the event. In addition we want to thank Monica Taylor for her continued efforts to help make the symposium a success. We would also like to thank the GDBBS office and program staff for their assistance. Lastly we thank the GDBBS Director, Keith Wilkinson for continuing to support our efforts to do more than sponsor mixers.
Again, thank you, and we look forward to seeing you next year as we convene again to make the symposium a signature event for all of us in GDBBS.
