On behalf of the North Dakota IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (ND INBRE), we would like to invite you to attend the 2017 Annual ND INBRE Research Symposium.  We also want to express a special welcome to the project directors and undergraduate students from the Tribal Colleges in North Dakota that participated in the 3rd year of the Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH) grant.

This is a special year for the ND INBRE since the opening of the new UND SMHS will allow us to have the symposium on the medical campus and to expand the program with workshops into the morning of the second day.  The meeting will be begin on Saturday, October 14 at 8AM and conclude on Sunday, October 15 at Noon.  Lodging is provided for both Friday and Saturday night.  A continental breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served on Saturday along with a continental breakfast on Sunday and a box lunch to take along on the travel home.

The Saturday morning session will be devoted to student research presentations and an update on the structure of the future renewal of the ND INBRE program during lunch.  Saturday afternoon will be devoted to a poster session, networking and the beginning of several workshops.  Saturday dinner will be provided with Dr. Thomas Hyde of the Lieber Institute as a featured speaker.  Sunday morning will be dedicated to workshops.  The format will strive to provide a friendly atmosphere conductive to open discussions and exchange of ideas on science and training.  

We look forward to your continued participation in this program that highlights the accomplishments of our undergraduate student researchers .
