IDR Day 2013

The Interdisciplinary Research Honor Society (IDR) is sponsoring the 3rd Interdisciplinary Day at the Inn at Virginia Tech.

The Interdisciplinary Research Honor Society, the American Cancer Society, and the Department of Biological Sciences are hosting the 3rd Interdisciplinary Research Day at Virginia Tech. IDR Day marks the induction of new honor society members and promotes interactive dialogue between scholars of all disciplines and levels (from undergraduate to professor Emeritus) in brainstorming interdisciplinary answers to complex questions.

Enjoy an evening of exciting roundtable discussion focused on providing integrative solutions for cancer issues (e.g. scientific, ethical, social) to American Cancer Society representatives. Each roundtable will receive a multi-faceted question and sufficient background information to facilitate input from diverse disciplines.

Dinner is provided. Registration is FREE but required (we have limited spots of about 100 participants). Students, faculty and staff at Virginia Tech are encouraged to attend.(Registration information is purely for the event only and will not be shared or used for any other purposes)
