TriBeta, or Beta Beta Beta, is an undergraduate biological honors society that was founded in 1922. The Chi Alpha chapter of TriBeta was incorporated at Russell Sage College in 1975. The overall mission of TriBeta is to encourage and support undergraduate students in the biological sciences.
As part of this mission, all regions throughout the United States and Puerto Rico hold conventions in the spring, giving undergraduates a platform to present their undergraduate research projects.
We are delighted to host the NE-1 convention at The Sage Colleges on April 21, 2018.
The first-place poster presentation and first-place platform presentation are given the opportunity to present at the national convention.
Abstract submission and Conference Registration is due by April 6, 2018. We invite TriBeta members and non-members to present, but only members are eligible for awards.
Posters and Presentations will be held in Bush Memorial Center. Please see map for parking.
