Undergraduate Summer Researchers to Present Their Findings

July 19, 2013

More than 20 undergraduate summer researchers working at the University of Virginia will present their work in the Clark Hall Mural Room on Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Many are U.Va. students, but there are also students from Virginia Tech and Virginia Commonwealth University. There are also students working at U.Va through the Virginia-North Carolina Alliance, a U.Va.-led program to promote research opportunities for traditionally underserved students.

There also will be several student researchers from the Curry School of Education’s Educational Psychology and Applied Developmental Science Summer Undergraduate Research Program, an eight-week internship providing undergraduates from underrepresented groups with research and professional development experience under the guidance of Curry faculty.

The research will cover topics in the fields of neuroscience, biochemistry, materials science, biology and environmental sciences. The students will present their research on posters, and will be on hand to explain their work.

The event is sponsored by U.Va.’s Center for Undergraduate Excellence and the Graduate Student Diversity Program in the Office of the Vice President for Research.

The event is free and open to the public.
