Student Research Week
Student Research Week (SRW) is an interdisciplinary event organized every year by the students of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Lubbock, TX. The main objective of SRW is to showcase the research and thereof, build a platform for interaction.
The past few years has witnessed distinguished speakers give seminars from various exciting fields such as Prions, Stem Cell Research, Phage Therapy, Fertilization, Aging, Biofilms, Vaccine Development and many more.
Along with the seminar series, a poster competition is arranged in which students from different biological research areas present their research projects and discuss their findings and ideas.
