Undergraduate Research Conference

Each fall, the Faculty of Science holds an Undergraduate Research Conference (URC) to celebrate the research accomplishments of our undergraduate students. The conference also includes a public lecture by a Nobel laureate or other luminary on a topic related to scientific discovery.

Everyone is welcome to attend. This is an excellent opportunity to see what McGill undergraduates undertake as research projects.

Students who wish to present their research posters should contact their departments in the preceding summer about being nominated to participate.

The next Undergraduate Research Conference will take place in Fall 2019.
