The 2013 BMBGSA Research Symposium was held September 19th and 20th .

BMBGSA Mission

To provide an outstanding setting for the BMBGSA members to build a prolific career in the field of biochemical sciences.

To establish a mechanism for the graduate students to network with academic and industrial professionals that will broaden students’ understanding in the diverse areas of biochemical sciences.
To provide an opportunity for discussion of issues of concern for graduate students and offer leadership to direct action, when appropriate and necessary, to provide a collective voice for discussion of the graduate students’ rights and responsibilities.


Grad students hard at work . . .


Graduate Student Research Symposium

The Graduate Student Research Symposium is an annual event hosted by the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Graduate Student Association. The Symposium has the specific goal of giving OSU graduate students in diverse areas of the biological sciences a chance to present their scholarly work.

  • Presentations are evaluated by a panel of judges from the University.
  • Awards are presented to the top four presenters in the oral and poster sessions. 
  • Participating in the Research Symposium allows students to learn about what other students are doing and get ideas for future projects.
  • Prizewinners have an excellent item to add to their c.v.

Check with your BMBGSA Officers to find out how participants are chosen in your area.
