On May 17, 2018 we will have our 12th annual NEBATYC Conversation at Northwestern Community College.


The day will begin with a free breakfast, session 1 of presentations, session 2 of activity tables and exhibitors, and session 3 of presentations. This will be followed by a free lunch with a keynote address from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's BioInteractive Group.  Please note that our keynotes have been highly received and rated by attendees, and are selected to apply to a wide variety of biology course content.
