The Research Induction Ceremony honoring doctoral students will be held Oct.18  at 4 p.m. in the Okey Patteson Auditorium at the Health Sciences Center. All faculty, staff, students and families are welcome to attend. A reception will follow in the Pylons lobby.

The Research Induction ceremony marks an important step in the lives of doctoral students who have completed their core educational course work, identified their mentors and are now entering their selected areas of graduate research. The laboratory coat presented at this Ceremony symbolizes the entry of these young scientists into the process of research and discovery. It also serves to recognize the bonding of mentor and student in a mutually supportive interaction that is key to successful training for a career in research.
