Last week, the Bridges Scholars attended the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS). This conference was a great learning and networking opportunity for our four Bridges Scholars, who were accompanied by the Rochester Post-Doc Partnership Scholars who served as judges, as well as their faculty and staff people. Look forward to vlog updates about their takeaways from our second, annual trip to ABRCMS!
