We would like to welcome the UIC research community to our 5th annual GEMS Research Symposium, which will take place online on Friday, October 8th, 2021. Originally conceived in 2016, the GEMS Research Symposium is an entirely student-driven initiative, offering a chance to showcase the research of graduate students in the GEMS (Graduate Education in bioMedical Sciences) program, as well as students in UIC’s biomedical research community.
