2017 RBC Undergraduate Symposium

RBC Fellows 2017
The Regenerative Bioscience Center (RBC) based in Athens, Georgia at the University of Georgia, serves as a vehicle for stimulating growth and productivity of diverse collaborative research efforts amongst the work of veterinarians, toxicologists, biochemists, medicinal chemists and pharmacologists. Through experimentation and analysis, our primary goals are to bridge the gap between basic science and clinical medicine, moving translation research from laboratory science into real therapies and treatments. As a collaborative translational research team we do more — by adding ideas, questions and new experiments and discoveries not yet discovered by traditional basic research. More: About the RBC
An exciting experience for any UGA undergraduate seeking direct experience working with faculty, conducting research that leads to new discoveries, treatments, and new cures for the devastating diseases that touch all of our lives. The framework of the concentration takes advantage of faculty strength in both the Animal and Dairy Sciences, Biochemistry, Engineering and Veterinary Medicine within a multi-campus infrastructure.
As a student you will gain research experience under the mentorship of internationally recognized academic scientists, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and industrial collaborators. Thus, our students will be uniquely positioned to apply for graduate and professional schools with the opportunity to have a very strong foundation on which to build a successful career.
