Read about our 2019 Symposium!

As the days get warmer, summer programs provide a spark for undergraduate research that advances scientific knowledge and trains inquisitive minds to solve the challenges of tomorrow.  In recognition of this “break time” between semesters, we cordially invite undergraduate researchers and their faculty mentors to participate in the Central Arkansas Undergraduate Summer Research Symposium.

This all-day event will be held at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences campus in the I. Dodd Wilson building.  The summer symposium will provide a venue to celebrate the achievements of undergraduates pursuing research projects at colleges and universities across Arkansas.  After all, the foundation for strong research programs in Arkansas requires recognition of the research accomplishments of our students and opportunities to discuss science for gaining feedback, learning new ideas, and fostering collaborations.  This summer Poster presentationsymposium will feature short talks and posters from undergraduate researchers covering a broad range of disciplines including biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and computational sciences.  This event will be hosted by the Graduate School and Basic Science Departments at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences as well as the NIH–supported INBRE program and Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP). Lunch and refreshments will be provided at the symposium at no cost to participants.  The conference has been such a success that we worked hard to bring it back this year and expand the invitation to other undergraduate research programs.

We look forward to seeing you,

Dr. Grover P. Miller, Organizer
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
