Registrants are welcome to host a Break Out Room between 9:30 -10am. This room is ideal for investigators and program coordinators looking to recruit students, postdocs, and interns.  We are limiting breakout rooms to 20 to give guests enough time to visit and talk with lead investigators and program coordinators from diverse disciplines.  Breakout Room Hosts must commit to be present in this room for the entire 30 minutes, and then will be invited to join the main meeting at 10am.  Breakout Rooms will be selected by the committee on a first-come first serve basis, and we will attempt to make these selections interdisciplinary.  We are encouraging programs currently recruiting students, to use this platform to meet diverse and qualified student applicants.
