This was one of the most organized and best-run conferences I have attended! The abstracts selected represented a variety of interesting and impactful topics, and the presenters were comprised of a group of approachable, welcoming, intelligent, and engaging students. I will definitely be applying each year! ~ Caroline, 2022 Poster Presenter
