Each year, for the past six years, researchers from across the AUB campus are presenting their research to the AUB community. This annual event continues to grow and to serve as a platform to encourage interdisciplinary research by bringing together the research community from different AUB faculties, and to highlight the quality of biomedical research performed at AUB. It provides for an environment conducive of scientific exchange and extends students, research assistants, postdoctoral fellows and junior investigators the opportunity to present their scientific findings and to foster interdisciplinary collaborations across AUB.  During this event, the prestigious Farouk Jabre Grant awardees are announced as well.

This year’s event is happening on the occasion of AUB’s Faculty of Medicine’s 150th anniversary celebrations, which will showcase the milestones of AUB FM over the years.
