Wednesday, November 4th
9am - 3pm

Students interested in careers in medical and biological research and biodefense should not miss this event sponsored by the National Interagency Confederation for

During the morning, representatives of the
various NICBR laboratories will describe their research programs and opportunities for internships, fellowships and employment. At lunchtime, participants will have the opportunity to chat with the speakers and obtain
additional information. After lunch, we offer tours of the various laboratories.
