The Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) is one of the nation’s largest STEM conferences for minority undergraduate students. Over the course of four days, students present their research, explore over 350 exhibit booths, and network with schools and peers from across the nation. During the conference, over 1,800 students from over 350 colleges and universities participate in poster and oral presentations in twelve STEM disciplines. All undergraduate student presentations are judged and those receiving the highest scores in each scientific discipline will be given an award during the closing banquet.

Undergraduate sophomores, juniors, seniors, post baccalaureates, and community college students who have completed at least 30 credit hours are encouraged to submit an abstract for poster or oral presentation. Travel awards are available for first time presenters.

Apply for a travel award by August 25th. Abstracts are due by September 8th.

Students attend this conference to present their research, explore graduate schools, and network. Research faculty and program directors play an essential role in mentoring students and strategies for facilitating student success.
