All BSOM students and faculty are invited to attend the 3rd annual Medical Student Research Symposium on Thursday, April 21, from 5:45-8:00 p.m. in White Hall on the WSU main campus.
The symposium opens at 5:45 p.m., when 29 student research posters will be available for viewing in the White Hall Atrium.

At the first Medical Student Research Symposium in 2009, Bullinger won awards for Best Overall Poster and Best Presentation.
