Fall Undergrad Research Symposium (FURS)

  • Science Slam 2020
  • Science Slam 2020
  • Science Slam 2020


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 return of 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).

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

Thank you to all the organizers and participants for a great 2020 symposium!!  We hope to be back in person for 2021!
