CMCI participants presented 24 posters at the Science Expo on Friday. The poster session and lunch buffet are part of CMCI’s annual meetings with External Advisory Committee (EAC).
In addition to attending the poster session, EAC members Irene Eckstrand, Harmit Malik and Fred Adler met with project leaders, CMCI modeling fellows and staff, U of I executives and heard reports Collaboratorium leadership.
Afterwards, the EAC concluded:
We commend the U of I’s commitment to CMCI even as senior leadership at the university is changing. Like you, we believe that CMCI is the shape of the future, and we offer our continued support.

She will participate in the joint IBEST-CMCI Seminar Series on Thursday and also give a less formal talk on Friday.
