Undergraduate Research Symposium in
Biological, Chemical, Structural, and Computational Sciences

September 16, 2017

This symposium offers undergraduates interested in research an opportunity to present their ongoing work in a forum of their peers. Communication of novel concepts and results will help immerse the next generation of researchers in scientific discourse. The event exclusively features undergraduate researchers with interest in pursuing advanced degrees in science and medicine.

The Symposium invites mentor-approved undergraduate contributions, from any institution, that are advancing the fields of biology, chemistry, computational or structural biochemistry, and biomedical studies. These scientific advances will be featured over the course of the day in a number of ways:

  • Two poster sessions, judged by experts in the field
  • Awards will be given to outstanding posters!
  • Oral presentations selected from abstracts
  • A lightning-fast data “blitz” highlighting the diversity of research at Mount Sinai
  • Sessions advising attendees how to navigate applying to graduate school

The event is free but registration is required. Mentors are encouraged to accompany their students, but we request that only contributing scientists attend the event and present their posters. Lunch will be provided for all registered attendees, as well as light refreshments throughout the day.


This event would not be possible without generous contributions from the following:

Friedman Brain Institute, Arnhold Global Health Institute, Tisch Cancer Institute, Translational Transplant Research Center, and the Departments of Development and Regenerative Biology, Liver Diseases, Medicine, Microbiology, Neurology, Oncological Sciences, and Preventive Medicine.
