2018 Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium – Rice University – Sat, 10/6/18

Please see message below from Jennifer Hunter from Rice University regarding the 2018 Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium:

I am writing to let you know that Rice will host the 10th annual Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium (GCURS)! Undergrads conducting research in engineering and natural science fields are invited to apply to GCURS, which will be Saturday, October 6, 2018, on the Rice campus. We would love to host students from UCSD!

We’re not your usual poster session. In fact, no posters are allowed at GCURS! GCURS provides undergraduate researchers the opportunity to present original research discoveries to scholars from around the world. Participants give 12-to-15-minute individual presentations which include a question-and-answer period. Following the presentations, faculty mentors provide feedback to each student. Past participants have shared that GCURS helps to foster interdisciplinary, intercollegiate fellowship.

For a full list of participating divisions, details on how to apply, and more, students may visit gcurs.rice.eduHere is student perspective on the GCURS experience, and a flyer can be found here. Please feel free to share this invitation with students and advisers. Advisers are welcome to join their students at symposium as mentors.

The application deadline is September 12. Limited accommodations and travel awards for those outside the Houston area are available to accepted participants. In addition, students are encouraged to explore funding opportunities from their home institution.

Best regards,

Jennifer K. Hunter

MedHacks 2018

MedHacks Campus Poster - Standard.png

 

At MedHacks, we select the top innovative technologists, scientists, healthcare professionals, and engineers to build amazing things together. Hackers across all disciplines, undergraduate and graduate, unite to meet with experts in every part of the medical field here at Johns Hopkins to develop their solutions to healthcare problems across the globe.

For a full 36 hours, these individuals work towards this common goal, developing projects ranging from Parkinson’s telemonitoring, mental health apps, and patient safety/care. Last year we had over 700 participants with sponsors like CVS Health, BlueCross BlueShield, and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine supporting the event. For our fourth hackathon, MedHacks 2018 (Sept 7-9), we are looking to expand the event even further to give more people the space to disrupt healthcare and create the necessary solutions for today’s problems.

Want to be part of this ground-breaking event and help advance medical innovation? Sign up for MedHacks 2018 today – learn more at www.medhacks.org. Apply before July 20th for opportunity for travel reimbursement!

Join the UCSD interest group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/medhacks.ucsd/. If you have any questions about the event or are interested in becoming a MedHacks campus ambassador, please feel free to reach out to info@medhacks.org.

Grad Student Research Panel

Hi everyone,

ChemPAL invites you to its Grad Student Research Panel next Tues 6/5 at 5:30-7pm in NSB Auditorium!

At the event, you will hear short talks from grad students about their research and how/why they decided to pursue it and grad school. You will also have time to ask your own questions about research, grad school, and more!

This is a great chance to see what research entails, check out some of the many areas of chemistry research, and learn how to get started. It is also an excellent opportunity if you are already involved in undergrad research and considering grad school.

Email chempal@ucsd.edu and check out our website (chempal.ucsd.edu) if you have any questions or want additional information!

 

Best,
