Graduate Student Research Forum and Graduate Alumni Reunion

The Graduate Student Research Forum is sponsored by the Graduate Student Association of Penn State College of Medicine. The primary goal of the Forum is to promote interaction and the exchange of ideas between students, faculty and alumni. The Forum introduces students to the format generally used at scientific meetings, and it provides an opportunity to recognize excellence in graduate research at Penn State College of Medicine.

The 2018 Forum is the event’s 30th anniversary, and will take place March 1 and 2, 2018.
