In order to give undergraduates the chance to present their work and have it recognized and criticized, which is an important part of the research process, we hosted the fourth annual Yale Undergraduate Research Symposium (YURS), a research conference run by undergraduates for undergraduates.
The event, which took place on September 28th, 2019, showcased the work of roughly 40 student presenters in fields as diverse as pure mathematics, medicine, and ethnic studies. The students delivered poster presentations, which were judged by professors and graduate students from various departments at the Yale.
The awards and cash prizes for First and Second Place in the Hard Sciences and Other categories were given by our faculty advisor, Associate Dean of Sciences at Yale, Sandy Chang.
