The Active Site is an event designed to expose undergraduates to current research. The event also serves as a networking platform, as attendees will interact with undergrads from institutions across the Boston area, as well as with the speaker and other professors in attendance. We will have a registration and networking period, followed by the keynote speaker. Lastly, we will hold the poster competition, where students can opt to be judged in order to win a travel award to the ASBMB national conference in April.
