Thank you for a successful PVMS 2020!

Another great microbial symposium is in the books. Thanks to everyone who made PVMS 2020 a huge success! Over 150 people from all around the Pioneer Valley shared their latest microbial research. Relive the day in photos and catch up on Twitter at #PVMS2020. A special thank you to our keynote speakers, Drs. Wendy Mok, John Gibbons, and Peter Chien, for taking the time to share and discuss their research at this year’s symposium. And congratulations to all our PVMS 2020 winners! Best talk was awarded to Charles Bridges (UConn), with Irene Kurtz (UMass) receiving the runner-up. Best poster was tied between Liv Dedon and Mrinalini Ghoshal (both UMass), and Everett Webster (Mount Holyoke) and Sarah Osman (UMass) tied for runners-up.
