HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

More than 1,000 scientists and educators have gathered at The University of Southern Mississippi to showcase and discuss the latest scientific research taking place in the state.

The 80th annual meeting of the Mississippi Academy of Sciences is taking place at the Thad Cochran Center.

Nearly 300 research projects are on display.

Participants are also attending workshops and lectures on organ transplantation, eliminating health disparities and HIV prevention in the state.

"This is probably one of the largest presentations of scientific research in this state, so having about 1,000 people here, that's somebody from every single college and university throughout the state," said Jamie Lott, outreach director for the Mississippi IDea Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE).

"There are a lot of other areas of research that are going on at other universities here in this state and this gives an opportunity for you to reach out to those other universities, those other researchers, and possibly find better connections to get more research of yours done and also for theirs," said Rebekah Bullard, a graduate student and presenter at the event.    

The conference wraps up Friday.

    Since the EF-3 tornado landed last year, William Carey University has spent the entire year working to rebuild their campus. “The feeling that we couldn't recover was pretty widespread but they didn't know our students, faculty and employees and our determination,” says President Dr. Tommy King. William Carey came from destruction to full restoration. Sophomore Cassidy Monk says, “The lord has just delivered us from such a tragic event..."
