The MERIT Program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham invites you to register for the 2017 IRACDA  Annual Conference, held at Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa  June 4-6.

This year, the conference theme is Forging Research, Teaching, and Diversity in Science

We will host all days of the conference at Ross Bridge. The Conference Committee is hard at work building out a program of events and speakers to engage and educate. We are expanding the opportunities for Postdocs and Administrators to present in order to encourage more of our institutions to share best practices and showcase great ideas in research and teaching. This will include posters as well as oral presentations for research and teaching. The call for posters and oral presentations, along with the call for programs for member-generated sessions, is now open.

The registration fee for 2017 will be $350.00. In order to budget effectively, we ask that you register no later than April 1st or a late registration fee of $25.00 will be assessed. You may register through the UAB IRACDA website. An additional $25 fee will be added to credit card purchases.

We look forward to seeing you in Birmingham!
