Scientific Disciplines Represented at ABRCMS

Published in Present at ABRCMS

Transformative discoveries happen when we work across disciplines to solve problems. At ABRCMS, we strongly encourage students in engage in multi-disciplinary research. However, due to the large number of student presentations, all abstracts are required to align with a single scientific discipline and sub-discipline. This allows for the abstract to be assigned to the appropriate reviewers and on-site judges.
