The Eighth Annual Biomedical Research Symposium

The Faculty of Pharmacy, Nursing and Health Professions and the Palestinian Forum for Medical Research (PFMR) are organizing the Syposium at Birzeit University on April 13.

This year’s symposium will host renowned international scientists from the City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center, in California, who will be coming to recruit students who desire to pursue their graduate degrees in the USA. The ultimate goal of the symposium is to present research conducted by Palestinian students and researchers as well as bringing together young and hopeful scientific minds.

The scientific committee have received more than 50 abstracts, of which 39 were chosen to be included in the program. ten of the abstracts were chosen to be presented in a poster teaser session, where the authors try to introduce their posters to the general audience and recruit them to visit that poster. This session will be moderated by two brilliant undergraduate students, who will gain plenty of experience chairing a session in a national and international scientific conference. students presenting teasers as well as others who are presenting orally or by their posters would be immensely thrilled by this new experience, and this meeting will be cherished for years to come. The lucky ones who manage to secure strong connections and networking would be happy to be able to continue their education in one of the world-leading institutes in the world.
