Midwest Student Biomedical Research Forum Seeking Faculty Reviewers

UNMC and the Creighton University Medical Center are seeking faculty reviewers for the 48th Midwest Student Biomedical Research Forum (MSBRF), to be held on March 4. The forum depends on volunteer faculty support from both UNMC and CU to review and critique abstracts prior to the forum and to judge oral and poster presentations the day of the forum. Each abstract is evaluated by three judges prior to the forum and the actual presentations on March 4 also will be scored by three different judges. Interested faculty should complete this form. Please be as specific as possible when indicating areas of qualification and interest for judging. Please return the form by Dec. 9.
