The Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Biological Sciences and Psychology will be held November 7-8 at the University of Chicago.

The purpose of the Symposium is to provide undergraduates from the biological science and psychology fields with a venue to present their research projects and results to their peers and some faculty. This conference is open only to students and faculty from colleges and universities that are members of the Midstates Consortium for Math and Science. To see a list of member institutions, click on “Members” to the left. Costs for participants including transportation, lodging, and meals will be covered by the Consortium.

It is important that EVERYONE presenting register. Listing the people you are presenting with DOES NOT automatically register them. Faculty members also need to register, using the same form; just leave blank any irrelevant fields.

The conference begins around 5:30 pm on Friday with registration and dinner, and wraps up at 5 pm on Saturday (with a boxed dinner to take with you). Oral presentations are scheduled at 15-minute intervals, allowing 12 minutes for the presentation and 3 minutes for questions. Poster presentations allow participants to display their experimental results on a tack board panel. Lodging will be at the Holiday Inn Downtown Chicago.

Registration will be open until September 29th. After you register, you should receive e-mail confirmation; if you do not receive such confirmation please e-mail Brenda Kroenke at to check whether your registration was received.
