2016 Research Showcase

Students and Faculty,

I’m happy to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2nd annual Research Showcase hosted by the Neuroscience Minor. Please forward this message to any interested parties.

The conference will take place 10am- 5pm Friday, April 1st in the Thad Cochran Research Center. Poster presentations will take place in the Atrium and talks are scheduled for 3-5pm in the adjoining seminar room, 1044.

Poster judging will take place between 1-3pm (we will work around students classes as necessary) and cash awards will be given for top posters in graduate and undergraduate categories.

The Research Showcase is open to all in the UM community with interests in seeing the great research our community has produced this year.  We hope to foster collaborative engagement by sharing research across disciplines.

Please encourage all your students to participate. This is a great opportunity for students to practice their presentation skills and for Honors students to give a practice talk for their thesis. Please consider adding presentation or attendance to the conference as an extra credit assignment for pertinent classes. This is a great opportunity for underclassman to get valuable information about the minor and about research going on in our departments.

The application for submissions is attached and will also be available on the website. Abstracts are not required at this time.  We need only a topic title and whether you would like to produce a poster or talk or both.  Please feel free to use posters from previous conferences keeping in mind that the size limit is 36”W x 40”H.

Thanks to all for your support and participation. We hope to continue to grow the conference each year and we are currently accepting suggestions for outside speakers.

Please note that our Psychology Department is holding a Conference the week following the Research Showcase.  I have forwarded the call to abstracts to you.  Please consider presenting your poster or talk at the Psycholgy Conference after presenting at the Showcase.  You can perfect your presentation at the Showcase and have a polished statement ready for the following week.
