About the Symposium:

The annual North Carolina BioSciences Collaborative Symposium is designed and hosted annually by the Duke BioSciences Collaborative for Research Engagement Program (BioCoRE). The event serves and an annual opportunity for trainees, mentors and administrators to gather and learn about the latest research and advances in diversity, higher education, and scientific findings from diverse leaders.

The Symposium joins faculty, administrators, and students from many institutions in North Carolina and surrounding states. A core goal of the event is to increase research and programmatic collaborations between all participating institutions. Sessions are designed for both students and faculty to provide information that will improve education, research and mentoring all participating institutions. National experts will also provide strategies and tools towards increasing the number of underrepresented students who persist towards a PhD in the biosciences. Finally, the Symposium celebrates and highlights the research of undergraduate, graduate and faculty. It is our hope that the symposium will serve as a shared platform for innovation that enhances practice and programming across the statewide and national biosciences community.
