To acquaint students with the professional forums in which scientific research is first presented, and also to illustrate the importance of effective presentation of their own work, all of our graduate students are encouraged to attend an annual meeting of a national conference in their research specialty within the first 2 years of their graduate training. Once students have selected thesis labs, the laboratory often supports their travel to yearly meetings to present data.
