About the Annual Student Conference
Each year, the University of Colorado Medical Scientist Training Program sponsors and coordinates the National MD/PhD Student Conference. Organized by the 3rd year MSTP students, the conference provides an opportunity for MD/PhD students around the country to present their work and interact with other students and prominent scientific investigators. What began as a small meeting in 1986 has grown into a gathering of over 225 students, faculty, and alumni from over 60 academic institutions in the United States and Canada.
It is with great pleasure that the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus invites you to attend the 28th Annual National MD/PhD Student Conference. The 2013 conference will take place July 26 - 28th in Keystone, Colorado. Over the past 27 years, the conference has brought MD/PhD students from across North America to Colorado to share their research, hear featured speakers, participate in small groups, interact with a career panel and enjoy the Rocky Mountains. Participants have the unique opportunity to network with their fellow MD/PhD students, meet leading researchers, and consider the evolving role of the physician scientist.
As in the past, we have invited a group of distinguished speakers from a variety of disciplines. These featured speakers will address topics in both basic science and translational research. In addition, student oral presentations and poster sessions will ensure that a wide spectrum of topics are discussed including, but not limited to, cancer biology, biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, neuroscience, bioengineering, developmental biology, and public health. The career panel will include physicians and scientists from both academia and industry who will offer a variety of perspectives on career development for MD/PhD students, including a new methods workshop highlighting emerging technologies in biomedical research.
The program includes free time to enjoy the spectacular surroundings of the conference venue. Summit County and the nearby cities of Keystone, Dillon, Silverthorne and Breckenridge allow for outdoor exploration, shopping and social gatherings after hours. Hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and other adventure activities are conveniently located near the conference site and are incorporated into the conference.
Ten Diversity Travel Awards will be given to conference attendees. We strongly encourage students to apply for these $500 awards that cover registration and travel expenses. Additional awards may be provided.
We hope that you will join us at this year's conference and find it as valuable as past attendees have. Please contact us with any questions.
