Washington, D.C. – Kelsey Anbuhl, a senior biochemistry major at Spring Hill College, was one of 13 undergraduate students honored recently for neuroscience research presented at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) held recently in Charlotte, N.C.

ABRCMS, the largest professional conference of its kind in the nation, is designed to encourage underrepresented minority students to pursue advanced training in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, including mathematics; it also provides faculty with resources for facilitating these students' success.

This year, more than 1,400 ABRCMS students participated in poster and oral presentations in 10 sub disciplines of the biomedical and behavioral sciences. All undergraduate student presentations were judged by active-researcher scientists, and the students with the highest scores in each scientific discipline and for each educational level received monetary awards.

ABRCMS is managed by the American Society for Microbiology and supported by a grant from the Minority Opportunities in Research Division of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences at the National Institutes of Health. For more information, please visit www.abrcms.org.
