Evaluation Services for the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students
The mission of the Minority Opportunities in Research (MORE) Program is to increase the number of underrepresented minority students who participate in the nation's biomedical research enterprise. The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) sponsors a national conference to (i) encourage undergraduate students to pursue advanced training and careers in the biomedical sciences and (ii) provide faculty mentors, advisors, and program leaders with resources for facilitating student success.
Specifically, the conference provides a venue for:
§ Undergraduate students to exchange their research findings and demonstrate scientific expertise;
§ Undergraduate students to prepare for the evolving, global, and interdisciplinary nature of biomedical and behavioral sciences research;
§ Students to prepare to transition successfully from undergraduate, postbaccalaureate, and master’s programs to graduate or professional education; and
§ Program directors, faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and students to develop professionally as biomedical scientists, advisers, educators, and leaders.
