The Fort Lewis College NIH-MARC U*STAR Banquet is held annually in November. This is a time to celebrate accomplishments, share stories, and interact with role models. The opening poster session provides an opportunity for MARC awardees to share their research with peers, mentors, administration and community members. Each year an invited guest speaker gives a keynote address, sharing his/her research as well as wisdom and insights. MARC Banquet guest speakers include MARC Award alumni and FLC alumni.
