Welcome to MSRS

MSRS 2018
Each year, the Student Council hosts a symposium on campus, at which current MD/PhD students from Rochester and other institutions in western New York present posters and deliver oral presentations on their research. The highlight of the symposium is a keynote lecture from a distinguished scientist from outside of the Rochester community.

~The 7th annual MSRS: Friday April 6, 2018 ~
