At National JSHS, student research presentations will be organized in concurrent sessions by discipline.
The organization of the sessions at the National JSHS is based upon a review of all abstracts and the area of research suggested by the student. Student presenters must state on the abstract the major discipline and the sub-discipline of their research. Please note, major discipline and sub-discipline are subject to change.
The major disciplines presented at the National JSHS are*:
Environmental Science/Engineering: Bioremediation, Ecosystems management, Environmental engineering, Land Resource Management, Pollution, toxicity; impact upon ecosystem
Biomedical medicine, Microbiology, Cellular/Molecular Biology, Genetics, Immunology, Pharmacology, Virology
Developmental Biology, Plant Physiology, Population Genetics, General Biochemistry, Microbiology
