Annual symposium to feature Rhode Island research

The Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR Track-1 program will present the 2017 Annual Research Symposium on Wednesday, April 12, at Brown University, a co-host of the conference with Rhode Island School of Design.

A showcase of Ocean State research, the event will feature a poster session of marine life science and climate change research by faculty, researchers, and students, funded by RI EPSCoR and the RI Science and Technology Advisory Council (STAC). Researchers from other RI EPSCoR tracks also are invited to present their work.

Professor Tamara Galloway of the University of Exeter will be the featured speaker. Her research focuses on marine pollution, the human health effects of pollutants, and the sustainable development of novel materials and substances.

Check-in, poster set up, and continental breakfast begins at 9:30 a.m. at Alumnae Hall, 194 Meeting Street. The research poster presentation, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, will take place in the auditorium. A buffet luncheon with welcome remarks and guest speaker Professor Galloway will follow in the Crystal Room.
