The Twin Ports area is home to a diverse group of early-career researchers, in a variety of fields.  Unlike other academic communities however, our post-docs and graduate students are somewhat scattered among their departments and institutions.  TPER was formed in 2016 to help foster a community for researchers and scientists who are going through similar transitions in their careers.

We now hold two major events each year, a Spring Symposium and a Fall Forum. We have been fortunate to have the support of the Integrated Biosciences Program at the University of Minnesota Duluth to provide space, technical support, and food at all of our events.
