Biology Student Research Symposium

Contributed by Nancy Pierce on 04/14/2005 

The Biology Student Research Symposium will take place April 26-28, 4:00-6:00 p.m., in CNS 112. Refreshments will be available beforehand, 3:45-4:00 p.m., in the first floor lobby. (Please bring your own reusable mug for beverages. Reuse, reduce, recycle!)

Presentations are scheduled every 15 minutes. The complete list of the 25 presentations is available at: http://www.ithaca.edu/biology/303_302s05talks.pdf. Everyone is welcome to attend!

A variety of research is conducted in the Department of Biology. Students may complete the research requirement by conducting research on campus during either the academic year or the summer. In either case, the student must submit a written report describing the project and its outcome. In addition, the student must give an oral presentation describing his/her research at a departmental seminar at the end of the research period.

As part of the biology major, all students carry out one semester of research under the supervision of a faculty member in the department. Undergraduate participation in original research gives students the chance to experience firsthand what the science of biology is really about.

Research efforts by majors in the department often result in publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Over the past five years, 18 undergraduates in the program coauthored scientific papers. Fifteen students in the last three years have given research presentations at the highly competitive National Conference on Undergraduate Research or at professional scientific meetings.
