by serving public universities and tribal colleges within the state
Registration and Abstract Submission Open
Plan to attend the ND INBRE Annual Research Symposium, scheduled for October 28, 2023. Undergraduates and faculty from across the state will present their research in a series of morning oral sessions and an afternoon poster session. An interactive presentation on graduate and medical school admissions is planned.
Undergraduates and graduate students are encouraged to attend and present a poster. New students are welcome, even if their work has not progressed to the point of a poster presentation.
Confocal Microscopy: This workshop will give an introduction to the microscopes available in the INBRE Light Microscopy Core. Special emphasis will be put on confocal (3D) microscopy with live demonstrations and a chance for hands-on confocal microscope use. No prior experience in microscopy is required.
Flow Cytometry: Flow cytometry is a widely used technique with diverse applications. The introduction will cover the general basics of flow cytometry and its applications. We will demonstrate how to perform flow cytometry experiments using human cells labeled with specific surface markers. Additionally, we will showcase Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), where a specific population of cells is sorted using the flow cytometry machine.
ND INBRE Environmental Core: This one-hour session will provide a tour of the Core laboratory and hands-on demonstrations of equipment and state-of-the-art instruments available for metal analysis of biological and environmental samples. Safety glasses, gloves, etc. will be provide for attendees during demonstrations, and attendees may bring samples to be tested.
