Register to Attend the 2021 MBIM URS!

Registration to attend the 4th annual Microbiology and Immunology Undergraduate Research Symposium (MBIM URS) on April 30th, 2021 is now open! Symposium participants will have the  opportunity to meet fellow MBIM students and faculty, engage in scientific discussion, and support outstanding undergraduate research undertaken in our department. In addition to the 10-minute presentations, we are excited to introduce a new presentation format for this year’s symposium, the 3x1 presentation! Students will have just 3 minutes and 1 slide to effectively communicate the significance of their research.

In addition to an amazing program of undergraduate research talks, we will feature a keynote address by Dr. Jennifer Gardy, former UBC professor and now Deputy Director, Surveillance, Data, and Epidemiology of the Gates Foundation.  We’ll also have lunchtime info booths with reps from iGEM, MISA, UJEMI, and local biotech companies in attendance.

As a reminder, abstract submission for the event is also open! The MBIM URS is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to showcase their research findings, develop communication skills, and network with UBC faculty and peers. The virtual symposium will include presentations featuring the work our undergraduate students done in research laboratories, and some of our experiential learning courses.
