SACNAS is a society of scientists dedicated to fostering the success of Chicano/Hispanic and Native American scientists - from college students to professionals - to attain advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in science. This year, the National Conference gathered about 4000 students and professionals. Taking place over three days, the conference showcased both undergraduate and graduate student presentations, offered scientific symposia, keynote addresses, professional development sessions, and a grand exhibit hall in which students interacted with over 300 exhibitors representing colleges and universities across the nation.
