Third Annual Summer Undergraduate Pipeline Research Symposium to celebrate research of undergraduates on July 26

More than 100 undergraduates presented research at the 2016 Summer Undergraduate Pipeline Research Symposium.

The 2017 Summer Undergraduate Pipeline Research Symposium will provide an opportunity for undergraduate students engaging in summer research under the direction of UNC-Chapel Hill faculty to present their research to a broad audience of faculty, staff, students and members of the public.

When:  Wednesday, July 26th, 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

The symposium will provide opportunities for oral and poster presentations, and awards will be given to the top poster and oral presenters.

“The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill provides summer research programs to encourage undergraduates from North Carolina and beyond to learn more about graduate education by directly participating in the process of discovery,” said Steve Matson, dean of The Graduate School. “While at Carolina, these talented students work with supportive faculty mentors, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to create valuable new knowledge. The Graduate School is honored to sponsor the Summer Undergraduate Pipeline Research Symposium, in which dozens of these undergraduate researchers present their discoveries to members of our campus community.”
