AADR Buffalo Section Activities

The AADR Buffalo Section sponsors periodic lunch and learns, a symposium, and a student research award each year.


The 2013-2014 year activities were a great success. For a summary, check out the writeup in a recent issue of the AADR Science Advocate!

A special commendation goes to Sarah Heit, a Ph.D. student in the laboratory of Dr. Stefan Ruhl, in recognition of her outstanding poster presentation and winner of the AADR Buffalo Section sponsored award at the UB SDM Student Research Day in March 2014!
