AP Biology Students Attend UH Cancer Center Weinman Symposium
Last week, twelve of Mr. Kyle Davis' AP Biology students attended the University of Hawaii Cancer Center's annual Weinman Symposium. The Weinman Symposium is a two-day conference hosted by the UH Cancer Center that brings together international experts from different fields of science and medicine to promote collaboration and the brainstorming of different themes in cancer research.
Our students had an opportunity to listen to world-renowned scientists and medical professionals present their latest cancer research. They were also able to participate in a Q&A session with these researchers! The overarching goal of the Weinman Symposium is to encourage excellence in science by inviting experts from around the world to share their research and ideas with scientists, professors, and physicians in Hawaii. Each year, the Weinman Symposium Selection Committee, led by Drs. Michele Carbone, Bruce Beutler, Carlo Croce and Haining Yang, determines a theme for the upcoming meeting.
In addition to attending the symposium, our students also had the opportunity to tour the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) in between sessions at the conference. Mahalo to the UH Cancer Center, Weinman Symposium, and JABSOM for this amazing STEM experience for our students!
