Over 20 UW–Madison faculty, staff and students traveled to Salt Lake City to participate in the 2017 Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) Conference. One of the main goals of the SACNAS conference is to provide 1,000+ underrepresented graduate and undergraduate students with the opportunity to communicate their scientific contributions in the form of poster and oral presentations and to network with faculty and other students across the nation.
Ahna Skop, UW–Madison associate professor of genetics and faculty advisor for SACNAS, attended the conference to support the UW-Madison student attendees and to help recruit for CALS graduate programs. Several UW–Madison students earned scholarships and other awards at the conference as well.
