8th Annual Frontiers in Science March 18, 2015

The Frontiers in Science program is jointly sponsored by the Regional Science Resource Center and the MassAHEC Network (AHEC) www.umassmed.edu/ahec/ .  Each spring, Massachusetts high school science teachers are invited to the campus for a day of presentations by the Medical School and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences faculty.  The topics vary from year to year, but always focus on the most recent advances in the fields of medicine and research.  Teachers are encouraged to dialog with the presenters and then expand their school lessons with the most current research.
