Timothy Fernandez, Dhruv Patel, and Michael Longmire presented their research at the three-day symposium.

Fernandez, one of UAB's three inaugural Beckman Scholars, was one of six students out of a nationwide pool of Beckman Scholars chosen earlier this year to give a plenary 30 minute presentation at the conference. His mentor, Jamil Saad, Ph.D., introduced Fernandez at the symposium. Saad also represented the 15 Beckman UAB mentors at this year's symposium.
