Come celebrate UB’s new month-long Summer Scholars program!

Summer Scholars and their faculty mentors will showcase their research and celebrate scholarship at the undergraduate level. UB alumnus Adam Pèrez, Ph.D. (’10) will join the Symposium as keynote speaker.

Keynote Speaker: Adam Pérez, Ph.D.

Dr. Pérez obtained his B.Sc. in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry, from the University of Bridgeport in 2010 and then went on to obtain his Ph. D. in Biochemistry, Microbiology and Molecular Biology at The Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Pérez is passionate about science outreach and communication and has participated in numerous programs, including the ConnCAP Pre-Engineering program and the NSF GK-12 fellowship. Currently, he is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Louisville working in the Dr. John P. Wise Laboratory of Genetic and Environmental Toxicology. In January 2018, he will be starting a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship at the startup company Photanol B. V. and the Universiteit van Amsterdam.

What is the Summer Scholars Program?

The Summer Scholars Program was launched this year with a team of faculty who are committed to enculturate interested students into the research experience within their discipline of interest. In addition, these Summer Scholars are attending weekly workshops by UB faculty, staff, and community partners, participating in journal clubs to enhance critical thinking and analytic skills, attending Research in Progress (RIP) meetings led by UB biomedical and biobehavioral faculty, and participating in an academic and professional development series on planning a research career, graduate school admissions, and other topics of interest.
