Undergraduate Research Conference

The Georgetown University Undergraduate Research Conference, founded within the Department of Human Science at the School of Nursing & Health Studies, is an opportunity for undergraduate students to present their research efforts. The first conference was held in 2003.

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

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. 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.
