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, UT-RGV, and UTHSC-Tyler.
To kick-off their joint efforts, students from the entire UT-System came to this year’s Mikiten Graduate Research Symposium at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
The forum organized by the Graduate Student Association promotes excellence in research through mentorship, collaboration, and student interaction.
This year's Mikiten featured poster sessions, career workshops, networking, three minute thesis (3MT) presentations, and multiple winners for cash prizes. There was also a Q& A Session with Co-Founder and CEO of Rackspace Graham and Director of The Rivard Report's Robert Rivard.
