What can you get out of attending a conference?  Former student, Caliope Marin, shares her conference advice to students attending the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) 2020 Conference, but it’s universal to any undergraduate conference.

Each year, hundreds of UCLA students present their research at numerous conferences across the country, which range from the regional and national level. There are also opportunities to attend a student-oriented conference.

There are also many opportunities for students to give poster or oral presentations on campus, including during Undergraduate Research Week.
