Student Symposium

The 2018 Student Symposium is sponsored by Nissan Motor Company.

Sunday, October 7, 2018
9:00 am – 5:45 pm
The Hutton Hotel
Nashville, Tennessee

The Student Symposium has become a highlight of the annual meeting in recent years as it gives attendees a first look at emerging research in our field and provides a welcoming forum for young investigators to present their work.

In the afternoon, students and attendees will have the opportunity to participate in AAAM’s Mentoring Session. In this session, students and young faculty taking part in either the symposium or the main conference program will have the chance to sit down for brief, round-robin style mentoring talks with attendees of the annual meeting.
