Join us for the Tiny Earth Winter Symposium! This inaugural, international event is designed to showcase student research presentations as well as engage students’ families and friends in learning more about antibiotic resistance and the science of discovery. Instructors should encourage their students to attend the conference, present their Tiny Earth research, and invite their families and friends to listen and learn.

Students who are interested in giving a poster presentation or research talk should register and also submit an abstract in this form. Presentation space is limited so please submit abstracts by December 4.
