Undergraduate students will have the opportunity to present their work at the End of the Summer Research Symposium Wednesday, July 31.

Students will give oral and poster presentations at the program, which will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. in Sullivan Hall on Main Campus.

The presentations will be based on what the undergraduates have learned in their summer seminar class, which met every Thursday May 30 through July 25.

The Office of Undergraduate Research provides funding for undergraduates interested in the three months of summer research.

Biology, history, chemistry, bioengineering, fine arts, environmental science, pharmacology and civil engineering are some of the topics to be presented at the symposium.

“It is a multidisciplinary, eclectic mixture of different domains,” said Jamie Teeple, a graduate assistant in the Office of Undergraduate Research. “We also want to make sure students in the humanities have a voice, as these students represent an integral source of the University’s rigorous research initiatives.”

Taking part will be 37 Undergraduate Summer Research and Creative Activity Program students, 11 First-Year Summer Research Experience students, three UT-City of Toledo Internship Program students, and 12 Research Experiences for Undergraduate Physics students. They will present with their advisers.

“Last year was almost standing room only,” Teeple said of the event.

Teeple has worked closely with Dr. Tom Kvale, director of the Office of Undergraduate Research, to plan the symposium. Kvale will emcee the event. Dr. James Trempe, vice president for research, will speak at 11 a.m.

All UT students, faculty and staff are invited to the symposium.
