student_research_0714

This summer, Salve Regina students are gaining critical lab and field experience through their Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships with Rhode Island IDeA Network for Biomedical Research Excellence and the Rhode Island NSF Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research.

The students were selected for the program through a highly competitive application process. Their 10-week intensive research experience will culminate with the seventh annual SURF Conference on Friday, Aug. 1 at the University of Rhode Island.

In addition, Salve Regina’s biology and chemistry departments have selected their own summer research fellows, who will also present their work during the conference.

The event provides undergraduates a unique opportunity to present their summer research findings to a group of their peers as well as demonstrate how federal funds are utilized in a collaborative effort to support research and student training in scientific areas critical to the state’s future.

More than 300 students, faculty and administrators are expected to attend the conference, which will display more than 100 posters presented by students in the biomedical and life sciences.
