Student Research Symposium

Saturday, October 18, 2014

9:00am – 1:00pm
Ahmanson Science Center

Since 2004, the CLU Student Research Symposium has showcased the work of top students, most of whom have spent the summer working full time on research and creative projects in collaboration with faculty mentors. This full time immersion is made possible by the generous support of fellowships and grants from a number of sources, including Swenson Science Summer Research Fellowships, Darling Summer Research Fellowships for Applied Scientific Computing, John Stauffer Research Fellowships in the Chemical Sciences, Pearson Scholars Summer Fellowships for Leadership and Engagement in a Global Society, Foster Family Foundation Undergraduate Student Research Fellowships in Religion, Amgen Research Fellowships and university Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships.

This year more than 25 students will present their work, representing a variety of disciplines, including biology, chemistry, computer science, exercise science, languages and cultures, mathematics, psychology and religion. Many of the original results shared at this venue will be presented at discipline-specific professional conferences throughout the region or country and may be accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals as well.

The morning will begin with six students giving brief oral presentations from 9:00 am to 10:30 am in Richter Hall, followed by interactive poster presentations and light refreshments in the Ahmanson Atrium until 1:00 pm. The community-at-large is welcome to attend and all events are free. 

The upcoming program will soon follow.
