WMRUGS Research Conference

The annual West Michigan Regional Undergraduate Science Research Conference (WMRUGS) brings together students and faculty for two days of learning and networking. Via virtual platform, students will share the story of their research project with other college students, faculty, research scientists and other college students, as well as build their network of peers with similar interests and experiences. Attendees will also hear stimulating talks on current topics in biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, neuroscience, physics, and more. Graduate school, professional school and medical school recruiters will be on hand to discuss educational opportunities with their institutions. Internship and employment recruiters will also be available to discuss opportunities with their organizations.
