The Mershon Center invites you to our first annual Research Symposium! Come and learn more about the exciting research that our Mershon affiliated faculty and graduate students are doing.

We will feature a variety of speakers and presenters across a wide range of disciplines. Four faculty research teams will make brief (5 minute!) presentations about their research followed by 5 minutes of questions and discussion for each speaker.

Following the faculty presentations, we will adjourn to the Mershon atrium to view research poster presentations by Mershon supported graduate students. Please linger to learn about their research, meet your colleagues and enjoy some delicious heavy hors d’oeuvres.
