Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS): 

Our graduate programs connected to Micro will be hosting a virtual booth during ABRCMS, which is attended by several hundred undergrad, postbacc, and masters students from backgrounds underrepresented in the biomedical research community. We're looking for a few students or faculty members to join us at the booth and chat with prospective students about research, training, and environment at Harvard. These events are mentoring-focused (not just recruitment), so it's also a great chance to talk to students more generally about research and careers in microbiology. Volunteers would attend at least two of these sessions: Wed Nov 10 2:45-3:30 PM, Thurs Nov 11 2:45-3:30 PM, and Fri Nov 12 2:45-3:30 PM. Please email deepali_ravel@hms.harvard.edu if interested.
