This three-day virtual conference focuses on translational aspects of addiction research among chemists, biologists, and behavioral scientists. The diversity of participants and attendees at this meeting (undergraduate students to senior faculty, chemists to psychiatrists) provides a unique venue for networking among different disciplines and in so doing promotes new and innovative approaches to medications development in addictions biology. The meeting provides a stimulating environment for young scientists who are strongly encouraged to present their work and interact with senior scientists. The BBC meeting has served as a “launch pad” for many young, innovative investigators to join the ever-growing world of SUD research.
The Pathways to Careers in Science (PCS) Workshop is a free, joint event that gives students and trainees an opportunity to discuss the variety of career paths that are available to young scientists. Attendees from UTHSCSA, local colleges and universities, and anyone attending the BBC meeting can preregister online for this workshop and can submit topics and questions for discussion.
