All the scientific seminar speakers are worldwide recognized scientists in the basic and translational research field. Therefore, their sharing regarding their excellent achievement should encourage young scientists. In Texas medical center, lots of young investigators (such as student, graduate student and post-doctoral trainers) have been worked for their career development. Therefore, KSEA West Gulf Coast Regional Conference shaded a new light to their thinking regarding future career development as an independent scientist.
In addition to Scientific Seminar Section, the KSEA West Gulf Coast Regional Conference committee prepared the poster session. Usually, around fifty scientific investigators were invited as the poster session presenters. Comparing to scientific seminar section, the active conversation between outstanding Korean-American biomedical scientists and energy engineers from Texas and other neighboring states has been performed during the poster session. These active communications in the poster section usually made the excellent collaboration between Korean-American biomedical scientists and energy engineers and created lots of new scientific job. These amazing advantages made young and senior scientist join to KSEA West Gulf Coast Regional Conference.
To improve the career development of young scientists through the KSEA West Gulf Coast Regional Conference, we prepared lots of poster awards. Their research in the poster session was judged by professional scientists based on their research presentation and discussion with judges and then selected as poster award winner. In addition, dinner and lunch were provided to all attendees to drive discussion between young generations and senior scientists in Texas, its neighboring states, and Korea for the development of young scientists’ career development. Last but not least, young generations from KSEA-ST assisted the KSEA West Gulf Coast Regional Conference allowing recruitment and participation of young generations to KSEA West Gulf Coast Regional Conference as well as KSEA.
