Over 40 CSU Students Present Research at 2nd Annual CSU Summer Symposium at UCLA

On Monday, August 14, 2017 over 40 students from 7 Cal State Universities presented their research to UCLA faculty, staff, and students at the 2nd Annual CSU Summer Symposium at UCLA. 

According to organizer, Dr. Diana Azurdia (Associate Director of Inclusion for Graduate Programs in Bioscience), the CSU Symposium is a way to make students from our sister campuses, who are conducting research, more visible to our graduate training programs at UCLA.  She explains, “In particular, the symposium highlights CSU students involved in capstone research training programs like MARC, MBRS RISE, Bridge to the Doctorate, LSAMP, McNair, and others. Students who participate in presenting their research have the opportunity to invite UCLA faculty of their choosing to meet them at their poster as a networking opportunity and a chance to meet prospective thesis advisors. Our hope is that CSU students will see UCLA as a place they would like to attend to continue their academic training.”

Students participating in summer undergraduate programs at UCLA were also invited to meet representatives from STEM graduate programs, the Career Center, and the Graduate Division.
