RISE: Poster Symposium

At the end of the six-week program, RISE students will prepare an abstract and poster for the Poster Symposium. The symposium will give you the chance to practice the essential skill of science communication in front of an audience comprised of those familiar with research as well as the general public.

Interns will present a poster in one of these subject areas: astronomy, biology, biomedical engineering, chemistry, computer science, earth & environment, electrical and computer engineering, mathematics & statistics, mechanical engineering, medical laboratory research, neuroscience, nutrition, physics, psychological & brain sciences, psychology, and public health.

Practicum students will present a poster based on a research project in the area of computational neurobiology. Please take a look at a selection of posters from past years:
