Research Day

Karstin Webber, GGB PhD student.

Our Research Day attracts faculty from across the university, giving you a chance to discuss your study with expert scientists, draw ideas from your colleagues, engage with potential collaborators and further your career goals.

Share your findings, receive expert feedback and network with other investigators during our annual research showcase.

You will join other graduate students to present your research project. The event recognizes the accomplishments of our graduate students as well as the important role of the faculty who mentor them.

Annual Event Includes Oral, Poster Presentations

Research Day is held midwinter and attracts more than 100 faculty and graduate student attendees.

Our slate of activities includes poster sessions, oral presentations, a keynote address by a distinguished research scientist, lunch, an awards ceremony and a reception.
