2023 ABRCMS Winners

For over 20 years, the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minoritized Scientists (ABRCMS) has been the go-to conference for historically excluded students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The 2023 ABRCMS was held in Phoenix, Arizona from November 15-19, and an unprecedented number of UCLA students were recognized. A total of fifteen students from UCLA won awards for their presentations.
