Organized by Willow Coyote-Maestas, QBI presents the 2nd annual “Full Circle of Native and Indigenous Scientists in Quantitative Biology” symposium on November 17 and 18, 2022. 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. 

The purpose of the “Full Circle of Native and Indigenous Scientists in Quantitative Biology” symposium series is to create an opportunity for North American Native and Indigenous scientists to share their research, meet other scientists, and work toward building a safe and supported community.

The symposium will take place over two days at the UCSF Mission Bay campus in San Francisco. It will include scientific talks from students, postdocs, and faculty as well as poster presentations, career tables, and panel discussions on Native and Indigenous topics.
