The current class of Tsinghua University visiting research scholars at the University of Pittsburgh will present their work during virtual poster sessions from 1–2 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, April 28 and 29 via Zoom. For Tsinghua scholars, participation in such poster sessions provides an important opportunity to practice describing their scientific research in a professional setting before mentors, fellow students, and other trainees and faculty.
In a collaboration that began in 2011, medical students from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, come to the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine for a two-year biomedical research training program. Periodic poster sessions typically take place yearly in Pittsburgh and Beijing to build relationships and educate each site about the other’s work.
A downloadable copy of the poster abstracts can be found here.
