Organized by Willow Coyote-Maestas, QBI presents "A Full Circle of Native and Indigenous Scientists in Quantitative Biology" on November 18 and 19, 2021. The symposium will highlight Native and Indigenous scientists across the United States, and provide them with professional development and community building opportunities. Our long term goal is to build a welcoming community of Native basic scientists at UCSF and this is the first step towards achieving that goal. This event represents the full circle of career stages for Native scientists, including learners, faculty, and faculty emeritus.

This event will also feature undergraduates, post-baccalaureates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers, who will share their scientific and personal stories and meet other Native researchers from across the country.
