April 6, 2017
The 12th Annual Stupka Symposium is entirely organized and run by the undergraduate students in the biochemistry, biophysics, and molecular biology areas of study. This event was the inspiration of Robert John Stupka III, an undergraduate student majoring in biochemistry at Iowa State University. Rob believed in the power of research, allowing the extraordinary to be possible, and strived to connect students and faculty for the purpose of scientific investigation.
