QBI - Symposium

2nd Annual Full Circle of Native and Indigenous Scientists in Quantitative Biology



8:00 AM-5:00 PM

Organized by Willow Coyote-Maestas, QBI presents the 2nd annual “Full Circle of Native and Indigenous Scientists in Quantitative Biology” symposium on November 17 and 18, 2022. The symposium will highlight Native and Indigenous scientists across the United States, and provide them with professional development and community building opportunities. Our long term goal is to build a welcoming community of Native scientists at UCSF. This event represents the full circle of career stages for Native scientists, including learners, faculty, and faculty emeritus. 

The purpose of the “Full Circle of Native and Indigenous Scientists in Quantitative Biology” symposium series is to create an opportunity for North American Native and Indigenous scientists to share their research, meet other scientists, and work toward building a safe and supported community.

The symposium will take place over two days at the UCSF Mission Bay campus in San Francisco. It will include scientific talks from students, postdocs, and faculty as well as poster presentations, career tables, and panel discussions on Native and Indigenous topics.

We are looking for undergrad, grad student, & postdoc Native & Indigenous speakers! For learners, our priority is to provide you with meaningful opportunities at UCSF, a world-class biomedical research institution, that will help advance you on your career journey. Some of these opportunities include: connecting undergraduates to post-baccalaureate and graduate program coordinators, and connecting graduate students to potential postdoc faculty mentors. We hope that you will apply so you can share your amazing scientific and personal stories and also meet other Native researchers from across the country.
