First Experiences in Research Symposium April 17

Celebrate undergraduate research, creative work, and achievement in the arts and sciences at the First Experiences in Research Symposium, Thursday, April 17, from 4:30-6 p.m. in the William Pitt Union Assembly Room. This symposium provides First Experiences in Research students with the opportunity to exhibit, present, and promote their research to the University of Pittsburgh community.

This symposium highlights the work of 239 students who participated in First Experiences in Research through the Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity. These poster presentations, as varied as Human Rights in Authoritarian Regimes to Imaging Brain Connectivity in Development, Injury, and Recovery, showcase the research that students conducted throughout the spring semester in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. This first foray into faculty-mentored research often serves as a gateway to more sophisticated, independent research for these students.
