Undergraduates and graduate students who have been involved in original research, scholarship, or creative work under the guidance or mentoring of a member of the faculty may present. Students completing theses or capstone projects are especially encouraged to present. All Honors College students competing for their senior thesis are required to present at Research Week events.

Presenting at the Rutgers University-Newark Research Week student poster symposium or a presentation session will prepare you for future experiences where you’ll need to present and apply your work. Being directly involved in the process of discovery, explaining your work, and answering questions from faculty members and other students will help you be ready for what’s next in your career and education.

The week will kick off with a keynote lecture from visiting guest Prof. Theodore Goodson III, R.B. Bernstein Collegiate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Michigan. Prof. Goodson will be lecturing on “Optical Applications in Magic Number Clusters” on Monday, April 22 at 11:30-12:50 in LSC 157.
This event is sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor and the Honors College.

On Tuesday, April 23, there will be a workshop for students on “How to Find an Undergraduate Research Opportunity.”

On Wednesday, April 24 the Honors College will host Prof. Mark Gluck of the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience for a lecture for RU-N undergraduates on “Risk and Resilience to Alzheimer’s Disease in Older African Americans: Undergraduate Research Opportunities with the New Rutgers Aging and Brain Health Alliance.” Lunch will be served. This event will follow-up the Tuesday workshop on finding an undergraduate research position.
