2020 Virtual Summer Student Research Program Poster Competition

The Summer Student Research Program (SSRP) Poster Competition is an annual event that takes place at the start of a new academic year. Each year the event recognizes our talented and hardworking SSRP students and provides them the opportunity to present research they have conducted over the summer months. In light of the restrictions that remain in place for COVID-19, we showcased and celebrated the accomplishments of our SSRP students at a virtual event.

This year has posed a number of unprecedented challenges to our research activities and we would like to thank our Faculty supervisors and mentors for their efforts to move undergraduate research opportunities to remote and digital platforms.

Thank you to the SSRP students for participating in the 2020 Virtual Poster Competition, to the volunteer judges, and to everyone who joined us for a celebration of excellence in summer research.

Congratulations to the following winners of the poster competition!
