About 100 student scientists from across the country spent the summer conducting biomedical research at laboratories in the Buffalo Niagara area.
Six research programs drew undergraduate, graduate and professional students from as far away as Puerto Rico and Hawaii, according to the University at Buffalo, which helped coordinate the programs.
Students worked with faculty mentors at UB's Medical and Dental schools, Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute on research into topics such as infectious disease, neuroscience, pharmacology and cancer.
The students also were introduced to the development on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
Their stay in the Buffalo region is wrapping up with a poster expo, from 11 a.m. to noon Friday, that allows them to show off the research work they conducted this summer.
The expo takes place on the fifth floor of UB’s Clinical and Translational Research Center, 875 Ellicott St.
