During the Consortium students will hear from several experts in the field that share hands-on approaches to idea generation, idea filtering, data collection, and data analysis.

A significant part of the Consortium will engage students in small round-table discussions with a wide range of faculty experts, from emerging scholars to accomplished scientists. Prior to the Consortium students will receive a paper authored by the attending faculty members. During these roundtables faculty members will share the story behind this paper from idea inception to publication and discuss challenges they encountered and how they have faced them.
