GRAPES : a bunch of fun

GRAPESThe Biomedical Sciences Graduate students, Residents and Postdocs Experiencing Synergy (GRAPES) is an organization devoted to the free exchange of ideas between all members of the research community. This organization strives to produce an inclusive environment encouraging interaction, collaboration and mentorship among the faculty, students, postdoctoral fellows, residents, and technicians within the biomedical sciences community.

GRAPES long-term aims are to facilitate interactions between various members of the research community within biomedical sciences at Cornell University. The goals of this organization are to promote a sense of community and inclusiveness within the field of Biomedical Sciences and to act as liaisons between the graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, residents and the faculty and administrative staff within the field. This organization is devoted to finding ways to stimulate and enhance the exchange of information between the different laboratories and individuals within the field as well as to encourage members to build their professional networks and relationships.

GRAPES has sponsored several successful initiatives to promote exchange of ideas, these include the Departmental collaborative hours which follow on from Tuesday departmental seminar speakers, Departmental picnic, Annual chili challenge and our first GRAPES sponsored external speaker, Kathleen Mulligan, who gave a fascinating seminar on how to get the most out of your voice when presenting. Attendance at these events has been exceptional, and we hope to see you at the next one!
