About the Symposium: 

Sponsored by the Department of Biomedical Sciences, College of Medicine, Florida State University, the Life Sciences Symposium is a dynamic forum that brings together speakers doing innovative, cutting edge, and ground-breaking research from different departments at FSU. These presentations are augmented with talks from speakers outside of FSU who are leaders in their respective fields. While promoting the broad-spectrum of biomedical science research at FSU, the Life Sciences Symposium also provides a venue for faculty, postdocs and students to present their research, spark interdisciplinary and interdepartmental collaborations, and foster professional development.
