Although we will not be holding any in-person events through the end of the year due to COVID-19, we plan to host at least one virtual event a month.

Upcoming events

Experiences from the FUTURE

The FUTURE (Fostering Undergraduate Talent – Uniting Research Education) in Biomedicine Program hosted by the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine is a distinctive summer program that brings faculty and students from primarily undergraduate institutions to the University of Iowa campus to conduct funded research with Carver faculty. The program is multifaceted by generating inter-institutional faculty research collaboration, exposing undergraduates to a graduate-level research environment, educating faculty and students on graduate and clinical opportunities and resources, and creating a statewide network of scientist-educators. Loras chemistry faculty members Dr. Andrew Kehr (participated summer 2020) and Dr. Adam Moser (participated summer 2014) will detail their research and program experiences. Dr. Madeline Shea, founding Director of the FUTURE in Biomedicine program, will also be joining the session.

Date: October 13, 2020 at 7 pm
