Celebrating graduate and professional student research
The AGS Symposium provides a venue for UCI to showcase outstanding graduate and professional student research to the Irvine community. University faculty and students, industry representatives, and members of the community are invited to attend research talks throughout the day and to interact with students to learn more about the innovative studies being carried out. Research talks will focus on how UCI students are utilizing collaborative or innovative methods to tackle important problems in their field. If you plan on attending the AGS Symposium, please consider filling out the optional online pre-registration form.
Keynote Speaker: Arthur Riggs
A molecular biologist and pioneer in the field of DNA methylation epigenetics, Arthur Riggs was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2006. Riggs and his colleagues were the first to produce human insulin in Escherichia coli. He is also known for his work on mammalian DNA replication, protein-DNA interactions, and the production of recombinant antibodies. Riggs has spent most of his career as a researcher, and later the director, at the Beckman Research Institute of the City of Hope National Medical Center, a National Institutes of Health sponsored cancer center in Duarte, California. His current work focuses primarily on mammalian epigenetics. All students are welcome to attend his keynote speech at 9:00 AM on April 18th on the first floor of the Student Center.
