    Welcome to the Annual RI SURF Conference

    Hosted by the College of Pharmacy and the Center for Biotechnology & Life Sciences at the University of Rhode Island

The 9th Annual Rhode Island Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows Conference will be held on Friday, July 29, 2016 at the College of Pharmacy building and Center for Biotechnology & Life Sciences, both of which are located on the North District of the University of Rhode Island’s Kingston Campus.  The Conference, co-sponsored by the Rhode Island IDeA Network for Biomedical Research Excellence (RI-INBRE) and the Rhode Island NSF Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (RI NSF EPSCoR), provides undergraduate students from around the State with a unique opportunity to present their summer research findings to a group of their peers.  We anticipate more than 130 posters will be presented in the biomedical, behavioral, environmental, and life sciences.  The conference is expected to draw more than 400 faculty, students, and administrators from the University of Rhode Island, Brown University, Providence College, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, Salve Regina University, Bryant University, Rhode Island School of Design, and the Community College of Rhode Island.
