Posters: If you submitted an Abstract, you will be presenting a poster at the Symposium. Poster size shall be no larger than 4 x 4. Email us if you need hi res versions of the SC INBRE logo. The most recent version of the logo looks like the one at top of our website (it no longer has the state outline on it). Student and teacher presenters, we have assigned poster locations – see the Abstracts link above.

Presenting students, your families are welcome to attend the poster session. Please let us know by 5 pm on Wednesday, October 25, your name and how many to expect. They are welcome to attend the poster session, but will not have admission to the rest of the Museum or the rest of the attendance benefits. Poster location is near the Crescent Cafe on the second floor. A lunch will be provided for you; they are welcome to purchase from the Cafe if they'd like to have lunch with you. A representative from the Symposium will be in the lobby to greet and check them in. Only those on the list will be admitted.


We are excited to introduce to you our keynote speaker at the SC INBRE Scientific Symposium – Dr. Rafael Luna, executive director of the NIH NIGMS National Research Mentoring Network. Dr. Luna is a research fellow at Harvard Medical School investigating the biochemical mechanisms of cancer. He's a dynamic speaker and has presented to a wide range of scientific audiences from undergrads to senior faculty members in the US and Europe. We are very fortunate to be able to have him as our keynote speaker this year.

SC INBRE Developmental Research Project Program faculty, students, anyone interested in learning more about the research of SC INBRE-funded biomedical investigators and students.

Symposium consists of student poster session and talks by our DRP faculty, plus we will have a special invited speaker. Our External Advisory Committee will be in attendance and would love to meet you and hear about the impact of SC INBRE on your research and experiences.

Symposium will be held at the South Carolina State Museum located on Gervais Street in Columbia. Parking will be free. Your attendance at the Symposium will also give you a 10% discount at the Museum's gift shop and free general admittance to the rest of the Museum, if time allows.

Please note: this is USC's Homecoming Week – plan on increased traffic in town, as well as rooms selling out early. The blocked room agreements we had with local hotels have expired. If you are looking to find a hotel room near the Symposium location, we recommend you search in the Vista area, or across the river in Cayce and West Columbia.
