“An Affair to Remember, Celebrating Scholar Achievements in Science”

Posted on Saturday, January 1, 2022

“An Affair to Remember, Celebrating Scholar Achievements in Science”, will take place on Thursday, April 28, 2022 at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco and feature our annual Scholar Symposium where the 76 current ARCS Scholars from our Northern California partner universities will present their work. The Symposium provides visibility for ARCS Scholar research and enables ARCS members and guests to interact with our scholars for a deeper dive into their research.

This year’s 76 ARCS Scholars from UC Berkeley (9), UC Davis (17), UCSF (13), UC Santa Cruz (16), Stanford (11) and San Francisco State University (10) are working toward completing their PhD or Master’s thesis work in a wide-ranging and very diverse set of disciplines and research areas, including: Agricultural & Environmental Chemistry, Animal Behavior, Astronomy & Astrophysics, Bioengineering, Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Biomolecular Engineering, Biophysics, Cellular & Integrative Physiology, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Chemistry & Chemical Biology, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Computational Media, Developmental & Stem Cell Biology, Earth & Planetary Sciences, Earth System Science, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering, Environmental Science, Policy & Management, Environmental Studies, Epidemiology & Biostatistics, Geology, Geosciences, Integrative Pathobiology, Integrative Biology, Mathematics, Metabolic Biology, Microbiology & Environmental Toxicology, Microbiology & Immunology, Molecular & Cell Biology, Neuroscience, Nuclear Engineering, Ocean Sciences, Oral Craniofacial Sciences, Pharmaceutical Science & Pharmacogenomics, Pharmacology & Toxicology, Plant & Microbial Biology, Population Biology, Physics, Physiology, Science Communication, Soils and Biogeochemistry, and Statistics. An impressive list!

To quote one of our current scholars, Jeremiah Tsyporin of the University of California at Santa Cruz: “As I enter the final year of my PhD, I am beginning to look for mentors to oversee my post-doctoral training. One of the significant ways I can find a mentor is through the networking opportunities offered at conferences. Without this generous support, these opportunities to share my work with the greater neuroscience community would have been impossible for me. In addition to attending conferences and connecting with neuroscientists worldwide, support from ARCS has helped ease the economic burdens associated with the cost of living in Santa Cruz. Because I don’t have to focus so heavily on dealing with basic needs, I have the freedom to spend more time and mental energy focused on research and intellectual pursuits central to a successful PhD.”

We invite you to attend An Affair to Remember on April 28th and to connect with this year’s 76 Northern California ARCS Scholars.
