View student research 


After signing in and learning more about SBMI's academic programs, CONNECT attendees will view current students’ semester long projects at the SBMI Spring Poster Session, where they will get familiar with student research conducted at the school and determine if their interests align with those of other students.

Learn about careers in biomedical informatics


After the poster session, CONNECT attendees, along with current SBMI students, will hear from SBMI alumni about their work in the biomedical informatics field, job opportunities and industry trends at the SBMI Career Panel.

Featured alumni speakers will include SBMI Assistant Professor Kimberly Smith, Ph.D., MT(ASCP), Clinical Informaticist at Memorial Hermann Hospital Systems Anwar Mohammad Sirajuddin, M.B.B.S., M.S., CPHIMS, Lidia Turrubiartes, a software engineer with Harris Health System and other former SBMI students.

Following the career panel, CONNECT attendees can interact with faculty members as they share their research interests and meet current students and alumni. Refreshments will also be served.
