2019 Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium

The University of Minnesota Summer 2019 Undergraduate Research Symposium showcases projects of undergraduate students from across the nation as well as many U of MN students who are conducting research in various Summer Research programs at the University of Minnesota. The symposium is designed to bring undergraduate researchers across disciplines together to present their research posters. 

This is an excellent opportunity for the University Community to view the posters of undergraduate students who have collaborated on research projects with University of Minnesota faculty.
