Student Research Week 2014

SRW Logo
          March 5th-7th 2014

Each year, Student Research Week (SRW) provides a platform for students and faculty across the Texas Tech system and regional universities to showcase their research. This is a golden opportunity for various science disciplines to come together and interact in a professional environment, to facilitate exchange of ideas, promote their excellent research facilities and stimulate collaborations, together, progressing towards the advancement of science. The theme for the 2014 SRW is Molecular Imaging: Advancing Diagnostics, with emphasis on promoting the united efforts among researchers and clinical practitioners, leading to the use of molecular imaging in quality research and healthcare applications. This event will highlight this rapidly advancing method of medicine which will undoubtedly reshape the future of all medical professions. To encourage this endeavor we will be hosting two eminent personalities from the field of fluorescent protein research and development of diagnostic applications.
