More than 500 students and faculty from across the SUNY and CUNY systems mingled at SUNY Cobleskill on Friday as they presented their research in the Second Annual SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference. The conference featured 190 poster presentations and a full day of oral presentations— 95 of them— highlighting some of the best the SUNY system has to offer.
The keynote address was delivered by renowned cancer researcher Dr. Jill Bargonetti, Professor of Biological Sciences at Hunter College and Chair of the Molecular, Cellular and Developmental PhD Subprogram in Biology at the CUNY Graduate Center.
SURC brings together undergraduate student researchers and faculty mentors from across the state for a full day of panel presentations, artistic displays, poster presentations, a keynote speaker, a SUNY Graduate School Fair and Career Fair, and professional development workshops for students and faculty. The event will be hosted at a different SUNY institution each year. It aims to create opportunities for learning, engagement, collaboration and discussion outside of traditional classroom settings.
