Dr. Jayne S. Reuben served as a mentor and judge during the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students Nov. 10-13 in Charlotte, N.C. As the largest professional event of its kind in the nation, the conference is designed to encourage underrepresented minority students to pursue advanced training in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. It also provides faculty with resources for facilitating these students’ success.

Reuben was one of 31 active-researcher educators to serve as judges in the neuroscience category. Overall, the conference attracted 1,400 students who participated in poster and oral presentations in 10 sub-disciplines. All undergraduate student presentations were judged by three separate scientists.
