Over the years the UB CBE Graduate Student Research Symposium has evolved into an exciting, comprehensive event that showcases the high quality, multidisciplinary research that is conducted in our department, and spans diverse areas such as molecular engineering of novel materials, nanotechnology, bioengineering, and molecular modeling. Every year our faculty and graduate students welcome the opportunity to present their work to their peers from CBE, other UB departments, our alumni, and representatives from local business. The Symposium has grown in ambition and scale, featuring over 60 posters, two lectures from senior graduate students, and a keynote lecture from an accomplished colleague. The Symposium includes a wine, beer, and hors d'oeuvres reception to honor our alumni and guests.
