Event description
Welcome to the 2020 Front Range Microbiome Symposium Registration Page!

About this Event

The Front Range of the Rocky Mountains is a hotbed of scientific research and innovation in microbiome science. From Colorado to Wyoming, scientists are leading ground-breaking microbial ecology research across humans, animals, the environment, and agriculture. Can we amplify this world-class science with better cross-pollination across labs and institutions?

With the goal of cultivating new symbiosis between Front Range researchers, the CSU Microbiome Initiative and Graduate Researchers Across Microbiomes (GRAM) is hosting the 2nd annual Front Range Microbiome Symposium. Please join us to kick off the event on Thursday, April 23rd with an evening mixer at New Belgium Brewing Co, and stay through Friday, April 24th for two excellent keynote speakers, Rob Knight and Margaret McFall-Ngai, as well as presentations and posters by faculty and early career scientists from universities, organizations, and industries across our region.

The symposium will be hosted by CSU at the CSU Alumni Center on the east side of Canvas Stadium. This generous venue and our uncongested schedule allows for abundant opportunities to meet and network with Front Range microbiome neighbors. We look forward to seeing you there!

Registration and abstract submission for FRMS 2020 will open Monday, January 6th, 2020.

Due to the popularity of last year’s event, we anticipate reaching capacity again this year, so register early to ensure your spot!

You are not required to present your science to attend, but our mission is to get as many early career folks discussing science as possible. Please do not feel like you need final stories, we understand science is a dynamic process and we want you to feel comfortable sharing your story, regardless of its stage of development. By submitting an abstract, you will have a choice to give a poster only or be considered for two different types of oral presentations: (1) a rapid fire, 5 minute poster pitch or (2) a 12 minute contributed talk. This is a community event, and we are excited you can help us build an exciting day of microbiome science!

Abstracts for posters and contributed talks must be submitted at the time of registration. Abstracts should be 250 words or less.

Cost of attendance:

Undergraduates: $10

Graduates / Post-doctoral / Staff: $15

Faculty / Federal Gov: $50
