Some 550 stu­dents, packed wall-​​to-​​wall in the Curry Stu­dent Center Indoor Quad, eagerly engaged with fac­ulty, research sci­en­tists, and fellow stu­dents rep­re­senting nearly 30 labs to learn about projects cov­ering fields from nanomed­i­cine to envi­ron­mental health, mag­netic sensing to…
