*NSPIRE, an organization co-founded by Keary in 2018, held its inaugural Symposium (#NSPIRE2019) at the McMahan House on the campus of CSU San Marcos. #NSPIRE2019 brought together roughly 80 students and faculty from all four partner institutions (Scripps Research, CSU-SM, MiraCosta, and Palomar) for a series of talks by the the 2019 *NSPIRE Fellows, a poster session, and info sessions about research and educational opportunities at Scripps Research. All participants braved the sweltering heat for lively discussion and active networking. Thank goodness for AC inside during the talks! Keep your eyes out for more to come from *NSPIRE.
