UCLA Campus California Nanosystems Institute (CNSI), Young Hall, and Molecular Sciences Building

Hosted by UCLA Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

 

The Southern California Undergraduate Research Conference in Chemistry and Biochemistry is an annual event open to all undergraduates throughout southern California. This is an excellent opportunity for students to present their research to an audience of their peers. Students may submit abstracts for either oral or poster presentations or attend the meeting to learn what research other students are engaged in. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty are very welcome, but only undergraduate students may give presentations. UCLA Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is proud to host this year's event. 

All conference activities will occur in CNSI, Young Hall and Molecular Sciences classrooms, break-out rooms, seminar rooms, and outside atrium in front of the CS classrooms.

Dianne Newman, Ph.D.
Gordon M. Binder/Amgen Professor of Biology and Geobiology, Division of Biology and Biological Engineering; Executive Officer for Molecular Biology
California Institute of Technology
