Georgetown University Undergraduate Research Conference
Alan Leshner, Ph.D., CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and executive publisher of Science, delivered the keynote address at the 2012 conference.
The 2013 keynote address will be given by Carolyn Clancy (H'08), MD, director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Founded in 2003 within the Department of Human Science, the Georgetown University Undergraduate Research Conference is an opportunity for undergraduate students to present their research efforts.
The conference is a combination of student investigations, faculty research, and keynote speakers, whose main goal is to highlight the research efforts of undergraduate students.
The conference is organized by the Student Planning Committee, a small group of dedicated undergraduates who are committed to enhancing undergraduate participation in research.
The conference focuses on medical and health-related research, inviting applicants from all health- and science-related disciplines.
Participation is open to any undergraduate student in the Washington, D.C. area. All undergraduate participants present posters during a poster viewing session.
From the pool of submitted posters, the Student Planning Committee selects three students, in advance, to also deliver oral presentations. These individuals are notified prior to the conference.
