The Dr. Samuel M. Nabrit Conference for Early Career Scholars at Brown University will take place on June 6-7 in Providence, Rhode Island.  

The purpose of this conference is to showcase the research achievements of outstanding molecular life scientists from historically underrepresented groups. Featuring keynote presentations by Karine Gibbs (Harvard University) and Enrique de la Cruz (Yale University), the conference program also includes short talks and poster presentations for invited attendees, a faculty panel (Finding the Right Home for your Research Career: Where Does Diversity Fit In?) and a junior researchers’ roundtable (Starting On a Successful Path: Overcoming Barriers and Making Decisions). Speakers will be selected from applicants who are senior graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and beginning faculty members or industry scientists. Applicants should submit an abstract for a poster or oral presentation. Travel to and accommodations in Providence, Rhode Island will be supported for invited presenters.

Submit an application online! The deadline for applications is Friday, April 26.

This will be an inclusive event, drawing attendees from the Brown BioMed community, including graduate students, faculty, and undergraduate researchers working at Brown through the Leadership Alliance, Brown-Tougaloo partnership, and the Brown UTRA program.

The conference has been named in honor of Dr. Samuel Milton Nabrit, Brown's first African-American PhD recipient and a marine biologist with a distinguished international career.
