(Video) 2013 Research Showcase: Perspectives and Recap

The 2013 Research Showcase held last Wednesday featured poster presentations from over 50 undergraduate and 30 master’s student researchers. The event was sponsored by the Division of Biological Sciences and the Saltman Quarterly Program.

Students presented in the areas of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Cell & Developmental Biology, Ecology, Behavior & Evolution, Genetics & Molecular Biology, and Immunology, Virology & Cancer Biology. The latest copies of SQ and UTS were distributed at the event, and an alumni networking reception followed the presentations.

An Evening to Present

In this media feature, students share their experiences of researching on campus, what they enjoyed most while conducting their projects, and advice they would like to give to fellow students who may be just starting out in a lab. Also an alumni judge from UC San Diego’s first graduating class shares how unique an undergraduate research opportunity can really be.
