National undergraduate research poster competition to be held at UBC

From Aug. 18 – 21, UBC will host the third Rising Stars of Research (RSR) Conference, a cross-disciplinary undergraduate research event that will give 117 Canadian and three Hong Kong students the opportunity to showcase their research accomplishments and develop a network of friends and colleagues.

The centrepiece of RSR is a poster competition held on Aug. 19 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Life Sciences Centre (public welcome).   The conference will also include workshops, talks from faculty researchers, and facility tours.  For more information, visit
