Welcome Message

 Nine years have gone since the First STU-MDC Summer Research Institute (SRI) Symposium. Over the years, faculty members from both institutions, School of Science, Technology, and Engineering Management of Saint Thomas University (STU) and Miami Dade College (MDC), have partnered to provide undergraduate students hands-on experiences and computational projects that will prepare them for the new challenges of the modern world and the job market. The commitment of the faculty and staff of the School of Science, Technology and Engineering Management has permitted to introduce students into modern techniques of molecular biology, statistical analysis, mathematical modeling, computational physics, bioinformatics, nano sciences and a large variety of characterization techniques. During this last edition, students exchanged experiences with researchers from University of MiamiFlorida International University (FIU) and also from  NASA,

For the second time, this year, the memories of the SRI will be hosted online by the MOL2NET conference series. It means, that all communications will be published online at Sciforum platform. All presentations will be peer reviewed and a DOI number will be assigned. MOL2NET conference of Sciforum is one of the platforms with international recognition for scientific exchange. The variety of topics included within this new edition acknowledges the inter-disciplinarity, teamwork, and networking of modern science. Feel free to contact researchers and participants to foster more collaboration efforts. St. Thomas University School of STEM is open to new ventures and joint ventures. Interested to see previous edition can follow the link  SRI-08 and witness the quality of 38 submissions with a total of 21 publications. The new edition SRI-09 received a total of 27 submissions.

Special thanks to our partner Miami Dade College (MDC) and the grant STEM-SPACE P03C1160161. The received contributions provided funding for equipment, logistics, and minor activities associated with the SRI. Ten speakers from and local Technological companies came to St. Thomas to share their wisdom as an in kind contribution.

Thank you for your support!
