39th Annual Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium
March 14, 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Wednesday: Biomed B103; Thursday and Friday: Keoni Auditorium, East-West Center
The Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium is held in honor of Professor Albert Tester who, at the time of his death in 1974, was Senior Professor of Zoology at the University of Hawai'i. The faculty and students of the Department of Zoology proposed an annual symposium to honor Dr. Tester's encouragement of student research in marine biology. Today the Tester Memorial Symposium welcomes research from any scientific field.
Papers reporting original research on any aspect of science are solicited from students at the University and are presented at the Symposium. Contributions to the Albert L. Tester Memorial Fund of the University of Hawai'i Foundation are used to provide prizes for the three best papers, judged on quality, originality, research significance, and quality of public presentation. Judges include faculty members and the previous year's student award winners. Further, a distinguished scholar from another university or research institution is invited to participate in the Symposium as a judge and to present the major Symposium address.
