Undergraduate Poster Session

The undergraduate poster session provides an exciting opportunity for students to present their research results to a professional audience. Conference attendees are invited to visit the posters, arranged by discipline and staffed by students who will be on hand to discuss the independent research projects they completed with faculty mentors. The posters will be judged for several awards including the Sigma-Aldrich Organic Award, the CEM Microwave Award and the Jean Durana Award.
Organizer:Susan Ensel
Set-up 8:30-9:00
Authors at their posters 11:00 - 1:00
