Two IMSD Scholars Selected for Awards at ERN Conference

Over the weekend of February 6-8, our scholars attended the 2020 Emerging Researchers National (ERN) Conference in STEM hosted in Washington, DC. Eleven of our IMSD and MoLSAMP Scholars attended, with 2 of our IMSD Scholars receiving undergraduate poster presentation awards.

We are pleased to announce that junior IMSD Fellow, Esiri Emeje, received Second Place in the Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences category, and junior IMSD Fellow and Peer Mentor, Dominique (Nicki) Joseph, received Third Place in the Chemistry and Chemical Sciences category.

The Emerging Researchers National (ERN) Conference in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Programs and the National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Human Resource Development (HRD).  The objective of the conference is to help undergraduate and graduate students to enhance their science communication skills and to better understand how to prepare for science careers in a global workforce.

Congratulations to Esiri, Nicki, and the other IMSD Scholars who presented their work!
