2021 Virtual ND State Science & Engineering Fair
Student News and Awards
The 2021 North Dakota State Science & Engineering Fair, scheduled for March 26,  will be held virtually this year.  The 2021 Regeneron ISEF will also be virtual this year, with plans to return to in-person as soon as possible.

The 2020 North Dakota State Science & Engineering Fair was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Some regions in the state held an in-person regional fair, while others transitioned to remote or had to cancel.  The Virtual Regeneron ISEF 2020 focused on sharing of ideas and information. Participating students went through the SRC process, listened to top scientists, industry leaders and policy makers, and connected with each other.

Germundson’s presentation was entitled “Food for thought: Brain pathology changes in a mouse model of mild milk allergy” and Singhal gave a poster called “Bladder Cancer risk prediction model for human exposed to arsenic: Gene expression analysis.”  See full article.
North Dakota INBRE Annual Symposium
The ND INBRE Annual Research Symposium will be held Saturday, September 25, 2021.  Due to pandemic restrictions, this symposium will be held virtually. Along with updates from the PUI and TCU research programs, undergraduates from across the state will present their research in morning and afternoon poster sessions.

NIH Seminar Series

Why? Biomedical trainees (1) and researchers (2) report anxiety and depression at rates far greater than the general population.

Goal: Increase awareness and provide coping strategies and tools to help participants support their own mental health and that of others

For whom? Trainees at all levels, PIs and other researchers, administrators, and faculty both at the NIH and in the extramural community

Five units, covering communication, resilience, inclusivity, conflict and feedback, and trainee wellbeing, will help PIs and staff support your biomedical trainees. Each unit will explore ways to manage common challenges in research groups by means of a webinar (to watch in real-time or via a recording) and facilitated small groups designed to build a community to improve training across the US.  You are encouraged to attend the entire series, but each unit may be attended as a stand-alone.
In-person Local, Regional and the State Science & Engineering Fairs are back on this year!  Judges are always needed.
