Hunter Hosts Second Annual Undergraduate Research Conference
Hunter’s second annual Undergraduate Research Conference took place on March 5 and March 6, bringing with it a 40% increase in participation from its inaugural year.
Over the two-day session 127 students presented their research during poster sessions in the west lobby and oral presentations in the cafeteria.“They are all so knowledgeable and passionate about their work,” said Hunter’s Director of Undergraduate Research, Rachel Verni. “They did themselves, their faculty mentors and Hunter proud.”
The keynote address was delivered on the opening day of the conference by Gregory A. Petsko (pictured below), the Arthur J. Mahon Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience and Director of the Helen and Robert Appel Alzheimer’s Disease Research Institute at Weill Cornell Medical College.
After two days of presentations, panels, and graduate and professional fairs, the conference closed Thursday evening with an award ceremony, where faculty mentors and students alike were recognized for their extraordinary efforts.
