Graduate Researchers Across Microbiomes (GRAM)
Graduate Researchers Across Microbiomes (GRAM) is a student organization at CSU that aims to foster academic crosstalk and create scientific dialog among graduate students and postdoctoral researchers working in the field of microbiome research. We are composed of early career scientists (undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers) affiliated with multiple departments researching many microbiomes, including animals, environment, humans, and agriculture.
What we do:
We are committed to having two meetings a month, one social off-campus gathering and one on-campus research-based discussion. GRAM will also play a significant role in the Front Range Microbiome Symposium planning, funding, and operation. It is our hope that collectively these activities will provide opportunities for professional development, offer a venue for early career scientists at CSU to present their individual work, and provide support to early career scientists.
Our mission is to provide a place for graduate students and postdocs across disciplines to connect over microbiome research, promote the professional advancement of its members, and cultivate and maintain a support network for early career scientists
