FURS 2021:  Saturday, October 30, 1 pm- 4pm

Undergraduate researchers from UT present their research projects in the biological and chemical sciences.  There are categories for less experienced (8 min) and more experienced speakers (12 min) and the Science Slam! 

The Science Slam is for explaining your research to the public.   Prepare a 3 minute "elevator" talk on your research aimed at informing anyone on the following questions: 1) What do you do in your research? 2) How do you do your research? 3) What question(s) will your research answer? 4) Why should anyone care about your research?  You may present in the both longer sessions and the 3 minute category.

UT Honors students, presenting at FURS counts towards your presentation requirement (3 minute talks do not count).

We are planning for in person talks and virtual (Science Slam) options. 

The following graduate programs will be recruiting in person and/or virtually:  UT-Southwestern, UT Houston, UT Austin, UT San Antonio, TAMU, Rice University, UT Tyler, University of St. Thomas, Texas Tech.

Sponsored by the student affiliates of ASBMB, ASM and ACS.
