Aloha Life Sciences ‘ohana,

We are excited to announce the 45th annual Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium to be held Wednesday, April 22 through Friday, April 24, 2020 in the Kuykendall Auditorium on the UH Manoa campus.  All are welcome to listen to research presentations from graduate and undergraduate students across multiple disciplines of natural sciences.

Presentation formats include 5 minute rapid-fire talks, 12 minute talks, and a poster session. We will also be hosting other events, speakers, and panel discussions focusing on issues in science today.  The Tester banquet will be held at the Bishop Museum on the evening of Saturday, April 25, 2020.  Mark your calendar!
