About the event
The Genetics Graduate Student Association at North Carolina State University will hold its 42nd Annual Genetics Graduate Student Symposium in February 2018. The symposium offers all graduate students the opportunity to present their research in front of their peers, the Genetics Program and associated departmental faculty, lab managers, and researchers, as well as our developing undergraduate researchers. Discussion on recent research advancements in Genetics as well as the future directions of scientific research from our renowned faculty will be part of the program. We need your help to continue one of the longest-running research symposium and ensure the spread of genetic research. This symposium is attended by campus-wide faculty and students and hosts many other national researchers. We would like to request for financial or in-kind sponsorship from your company.
Why should you sponsor?
The Genetics Graduate Student Association requests your sponsorship of the symposium in the form of a tax-deductible donation. Sponsorship funds will directly benefit this student-run program by deferring the cost of meals and refreshments, program printing, speaking awards and other symposium-related expenses. As a sponsor, you will receive recognition during the symposium as well as printed publicity in the symposium program. In addition, sponsors will also have the opportunity to showcase their company in vendor exhibits during a show this fall. The show, scheduled for November, will draw attendance from students, postdocs, faculty, and laboratory personnel from Biological Sciences and related departments across the entire university. In addition, the show will provide our students with the opportunity to network professionally with representatives of companies whose products and services are integral to their scientific research and in-turn companies will get to know our graduate students personally. Lunch will be provided free of charge for vendors and attendees.
I sincerely hope that your company will be able to offer some form of support to the scientific community and the Genetics research held at NCSU. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to know more about the research carried out at NCSU or if you need additional information. We would also try to accommodate any other requests that you might have.
