UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH AND SENIOR THESIS PRESENTATION - POSTER FAIR


Partially Sponsored by the Local ACS Chapter, and the UArizona Student/Faculty Interactions Grant Program


MONDAY, MAY 1, 2023 - 1:00 - 3:30

STUDENT UNION NORTH BALLROOM

 

    The Undergraduate Research and Senior Thesis Presentation is an annual Poster Fair hosted by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry to:
    • highlight Departmental research opportunities for undergraduates through a poster session
    • provide a place for presentation of Senior Capstone/Thesis research projects
    • provide a forum to showcase research projects conducted by our undergraduates
    • answer any questions you have about the Chemistry and Biochemistry majors

       

    Prizes

    1st place winners receive a monetary award (through their Bursar account)

    2nd place winners receive a monetary award (through their Bursar account)

    See the List of Poster Presenters - TBD

    Poster entrants must be a declared chemistry or biochemistry major, or conducting chem/biochem research with a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

    Posters are initially placed in one of several categories. They include:

    • Physical Science projects involve non-living systems. While your work may have the potential to affect living creatures or be used by living creatures, the research problem you are working to solve does not directly involve the study of living or biological tissues, cells, etc.
    • Life (or Bio) Science projects involve most other areas beyond physical described above. If the project deals with the study of living tissues, creatures, biological processes, affects on human life, etc. it is most likely that your poster will fit this category.

    Then the poster will either be judged as accomplished research or emerging research within its category:

    • Advanced Research: This category reflects the level of accomplishment on the project. Students will most likely have over a year of experience (but not always) and have made progress such that there are results to report.
    • Emerging Research: This category suits new researchers (with a year or less of experience) who have defined a problem, designed a project, may be collecting data, but may lack results at this point.
