2021 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. This year there were 16 posters presented at the poster competition held on Thursday, October 14, 2021.

Thank you to the SSRP students for participating in the 2021 SSRP Poster Competition, the supervisors for their mentorship and support, to the volunteer judges, and to everyone who joined us for a celebration of excellence in summer research.
