The 21st Annual Student Research Colloquium was held on September 23, 2017. We had another successful event with oral and poster presentations from our Graduate Program in Marine Biology students as well as a graduate student from The Citadel.
Presentations were followed by the keynote address given by Dr. Billie Swalla, Director, Friday Harbor Laboratories, Washington University.
The event was closed with a Lowcountry Boil and introduction of the new GPMB students.
The purpose of the colloquium is three-fold:
- It gives students the opportunity to present their research in a professional setting and receive feedback from judges and audience members.
- The presentations are a showcase of the research activities performed by GPMB students and faculty affiliated with the program.
- Finally, the colloquium is an opportunity for students and faculty to interact and talk about the research activities they are interested in.
