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. More than 150 posters will be presented in the biomedical, behavioral, environmental, and life sciences. The conference is expected to draw an estimated 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, and the Community College of Rhode Island.
Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows are SURFing the state performing research, learning invaluable skills, and working with state of the art equipment in scientific laboratories around the state of Rhode Island. Their research is published in scientific journals as co-authors with their investigators.
Rhode Island Governor Gina M. Raimondo hailed the accomplishments of the 137 undergraduates who presented their scientific findings at the 8th Annual RI SURF Conference, saying they were exactly what the state needed to build a new, innovative, and talent-based ecosystem.
