For over 20 years, the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Scientists (ABRCMS) has been the go-to conference for underrepresented community college, undergraduate and postbaccalaureate students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This year, our postbac PREP scholar Kiya Jackson, along with undergraduate researchers Darlene Rahbarian and Luis Farrach, represented the Nord Lab by participating in the conference that took place from November 9-12, in Anaheim, CA. They presented posters with their contributions to the ongoing Disease Modeling and Enhancer Biology projects in our lab. “I really enjoyed my experience at ABRCMS because I was able to gain a better sense of self belonging in the field of science and learned a lot from other research-oriented students” said Dalene Rahbarian. “My favorite part about attending ABRCMS was networking with scientists from diverse fields and stages of their scientific careers. This was also my third in-person conference after a couple years of virtual events. I really enjoyed the opportunity to interact and present my research” commented Kiya Jackson. Well done Nord lab trainees!
