The annual Mikiten Research Forum is always an exciting time for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. 

This year's Mikiten Graduate Research Symposium will unite leaders across the UT System for the first ever "Mega Mikiten" on September 10.

The forum organized by the Graduate Student Association promotes excellence in research through mentorship, collaboration, and student interaction.

Leaders across UT System recently met to form the "Biomedical Graduate Student Network" to increase inter-institutional cooperation as well as to establish new mechanisms for biomedical sciences graduate students to collaborate and pursue joint initiatives.

The schools involved were UTHSC-Houston, UT-Southwestern, UT-Austin, UT-Dallas, UT-Arlington, UTSA, UTMB and UTHSC-Tyler.

To kick-off their joint efforts, the group intends to draw graduate students form the entire UT-System to this year’s Mikiten Graduate Research Symposium at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

This year's Mikiten will feature a Q& A Session with Co-Founder and CEO of Rackspace Graham and Director of The Rivard Report's Robert Rivard.

There will also be poster sessions, career workshops, networking, three minute thesis (3MT) presentations, and multiple winners for cash prizes.

This event is open to all biomedical disciplines. To register for the Mikiten Graduate Research Symposium or to submit an abstract by Aug 31, click here.
