Our inaugural Tissue Microenvironment (TiMe) Training Program Symposium hosted on Monday, May 15, 2107 was a great success! Each of the TiMe students presented a summary of their research projects, followed by presentations from members of the External Advisory Board, Dr. David Beebe (University of Wisconsin Madison), Dr. Peter So (MIT), and Dr. Bruce Wheeler (UCSD), and faculty preceptor Kris Kilian (UIUC).
