The University of Illinois Springfield Natural Science Division will be celebrating the 10th Annual UIS Science Research Symposium on Friday, April 16, 2010. The symposium is an all-day event (9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) featuring student and faculty research presentations and a distinguished keynote speaker. This year's keynote speaker will be Dr. Andrew Gewirth, from the Department of Chemistry at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and his talk will be on the “Behavior of Supported Phospholipid Bilayers”.
The primary goals of the symposium are to share the results of various local scientific studies, encourage scientific dialogue in the community, and to inform the community of the research conducted at UIS and at neighboring campuses. The symposium is open to the public. Undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty involved in any aspect of scientific research are encouraged to present either oral presentations or poster presentations. Prizes will be awarded to the three best student oral presentations and to the three best student posters.
Anyone interested in presenting at the symposium should visit the symposium website (www.uis.edu/biology/symposium/) and apply online. The deadline to submit an abstract is March 26, 2010. The registration fee for presenters is $10. Registration is free for students who are members of the UIS Biology, Chemistry, or Clinical Laboratory Science student clubs.
