The Lehigh Valley Molecular and Cell Biology Society (LVMCBS), an organization created by DeSales University Biology faculty members Dr. Lara Goudsouzian and Dr. Joshua Slee, facilitates open communication and collaboration between faculty and undergraduate students at regional colleges and universities in Eastern Pennsylvania.

LVMCBS provides students with opportunities to discuss and present their research, filling the current regional conference void in the molecular and cell biology field.

Please mark your calendars for our third annual meeting to be held at DeSales University on April 24, 2018.
