Attendees will hail from Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Fordham University, Montefiore Hospital, the New York Botanical Garden, Wildlife Conservation Society/ Bronx Zoo, and will present projects in fields as varied as biology, biomedical Science, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, and psychology.

The consortium was formed in May 2012 with the goal of expanding research and education collaborations between north central Bronx organizations with deep ties to the borough. It is tasked with conducting research that is interdisciplinary, utilizing the talents and input of faculty members, biologists, chemists, mathematicians, patients, clinicians, and others from each of the partner institutions.
