More than 1,000 researchers, students and professors from across the state will convene at The University of Southern Mississippi's Thad Cochran Center on Feb. 26-27 for the Mississippi Academy of Sciences' Annual Meeting.
Southern Miss President Rodney D. Bennett will present the keynote Dodgen Lecture – “USM Research: Transforming Everyday Life into Infinite Possibilities” -- at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 26.
Each year, the Academy holds an annual meeting to present addresses, symposia, workshops, scientific papers, and exhibits of interest to its members. Research papers are presented in divisional meetings which include agriculture and plant science; cellular, molecular and developmental biology; chemistry and chemical engineering; geology and geography; health sciences; marine and atmospheric sciences; mathematics; computer science and statistics; microbiology and immunology; physics and engineering; psychology and behavioral neuroscience; science education; and zoology and entomology.
The annual meeting provides an excellent forum for members to exchange ideas and information. MAS publishes abstracts of the presented papers as part of the meeting program and as a supplement to the annual Journal of the Mississippi Academy of Sciences.
The meeting is free and open to the public. To learn more about the Mississippi Academy of Sciences, visit: http://msacad.org/
