Santa Barbara, Calif., April 23, 2011 – Vascular BioSciences will be a major sponsor of the 2011 Southern California Undergraduate Research Conference in Chemistry and Biochemistry to be held at the University of California Santa Barbara.
The Southern California Conference on Undergraduate Research (SCURC) is a distinguished gathering that recognizes outstanding research achievements among undergraduates in chemistry and biochemistry. The SCURC conference attracted over 340 research submissions from chemistry and biochemistry undergraduates throughout southern California. The SCURC provides a forum for chemistry and biochemistry undergraduates to present their research to their peers and the scientific community.
“Sponsoring an undergraduate research conferences such as SCURC is one way to help recognize and nurture the scientific research community of tomorrow. I look forward to seeing the presentations and learning more about the research being done today by undergraduates at Southern California universities. Presenting their research in such a setting helps undergraduates prepare for the road ahead. It will also be an honor to share my knowledge and experiences with them on a personal level,” commented David Mann, CEO of Vascular BioSciences, who will also present opening remarks at the conference.
