Students from 24 high schools across the Puget Sound region converged on Shoreline Community College May 27, 2015, for the 15th Student Bio Expo, hosted by the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR).

The judged event drew more than 300 students competing in categories from art and dance to molecular modeling and lab research.

Shoreline President Cheryl Roberts welcomed the students, teachers, supporters and organizers in the theater. The keynote address was given by Dr. Lupe Salazar, of the Tumor Vaccine Group at University of Washington Medicine.

Student presentations were in the PUB Main Dining Room and several other nearby rooms.

The NWABR is a collaborative industry-supported group with a mission to promote the public’s trust in biomedical research and its ethical conduct.

The mission of the Student Bio Expo is to promote an understanding of bioscience research among high school students. The expo is the culmination of a year-long process that includes matching students with mentors in the biotech industry.
