Undergraduate Student Research: A Multidisciplinary Session III Posters

Session ID#: 92751

Session Description:
Undergraduates who have conducted research are invited to present their results in this general session that will highlight the wide variety of student research and provide an opportunity for interested faculty to discuss your project with you. Students who have participated in Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs are particularly invited so that we may showcase the wide range of research experiences available through this program. Students are not limited to this session, and we encourage any undergraduate student who wishes to submit an abstract to a specialized science session in the subject of their research to consider that option as well. Submissions may be for posters or oral presentations.
