Biomedical symposium begins at Marshall University

More than 150 people traveled to Marshall University Thursday to take part in the statewide Biomedical Research Symposium.

HUNTINGTON  Undergraduate students from Marshall and West Virginia University participated in a Biomedical Research Symposium Thursday.

A $16 million grant from the National Institutes of Health was awarded to the Marshall and West Virginia University researchers for the program.

Officials with the program said the program advances the students by interaction with others in the field. “It gives them a chance to interact with faculty and students who help shape their career as they go forward in the health sciences,” said organizer Dr. Gary Rankin.

Students spent Thursday evening in a poster session.
