Oakwood University Students Present Award-Winning Research at National Conference (293 hits)

Students from Oakwood University attended the national Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABCRMS) meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, November 1-4, 2017

Sixteen students presented posters of their research in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Psychology. Kiera Yankson, a Junior Biology major, won $300 for her poster presentation on her summer research conducted at Mayo Clinic. The title of her research, in the Cancer Biology category, was "Biological Nanoparticles for Drug Delivery to the Brain."

Most of these Oakwood students are part of the Increasing Minority Admission to Research Institutions (IMARI) program, funded by the NIH/RISE. Our students were actively recruited to graduate and professional schools during the conference, and valuable networking and contacts were made. Oakwood University was well represented by a stellar group of young researchers.
