X60 Pre-Meeting Congress for Students, Postdocs, and Early Career Professionals in Microscopy and Microanalysis
The MSA Student Council has organized the second annual X60 Pre-Meeting Congress (PMC) for Students, Postdocs, and Early Career Professionals in Microscopy & Microanalysis, to be held in conjunction with M&M 2018 in Baltimore. The event features an informal get-together on Friday night, where participants can meet in a relaxed setting, and is scheduled to allow those interested to attend a Sunday Short Course or Focused Interest Group (FIG) sponsored PMC, or to enjoy a day in Baltimore with new friends.
The PMC is organized by, and tailored to, students and early career professionals, however all M&M registrants are welcome to attend. The PMC will offer a highly interactive forum for participants to discuss their cutting edge research, network, and engage with peers ahead of the main meeting. Invited speakers will be selected from awardees to be honored at M&M 2018, giving attendees an opportunity to experience a sampling of the best research to be presented by their peers across scientific disciplines in biological science, physical science, analytical science, and instrumentation. Contributed talks and posters will give attendees an opportunity to share their work with peers in an intimate casual setting. Further professional development opportunities will include a luncheon featuring a panel of recent graduates currently working in industry, academia, policy, and government labs.
The MSA Student Council PMCx60 and M&M 2018 are a wonderful opportunity for students (undergraduate and graduate), postdocs, and early career professionals to network with peers and members of academia and industry as well as vendors from a variety of top companies.
