Student Research Week at TTUHSC


Student Research Week (SRW) is the annual celebration of our outstanding TTUHSC student research. SRW is organized by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and consists of poster competition for students, keynote addresses, student presentations, vendor show and a fundraising banquet. It provides an opportunity for students to present and explore new research and also fosters interactions between students and faculty. SRW is one of the largest events at TTUHSC including over 300 participants. Now in its 28th year the theme for upcoming SRW is “Molecular Basis of Life & Disease”.
