FURS 2022: Saturday, September 24 10:30AM-4:30 PM in RLP 0.1xx
Schedule here and Speaker list here.
Undergraduate researchers from UT and across Texas will speak on their research projects in the biological and chemical sciences and may participate in the Science Slam!
Science Slam talks are 3-minute "elevator" talks in which you describe your research targeting a non-scientist/layperson audience. The presentation should be 3 minutes MAXIMUM. It is optional, but each presenter is allowed to use one simple PowerPoint slide. You will be judged on your ability to communicate your research/science to a non-scientist audience and the style of your presentation. You may present in the both the speaker sessions and Science Slam.
UT Honors students, presenting at FURS counts towards your presentation requirement (Science Slam talks do not count).
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jason McLellan of UT, the recipient of the 2022 O'Donnell Award in Medicine for his work on COVID spike protein structure, " The ‘Overnight’ Vaccine: Years in the Making ".
