2021 Virtual Mid-Atlantic Undergraduate Research Conference (MAURC) at Virginia Tech

December 24th, 2020

Are you involved in research and looking for an opportunity to showcase your skills? Do you want to learn more from professionals in your discipline? Would you like the opportunity to meet students from across the United States in varying STEM fields? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you should apply to the 2021 Virtual Mid-Atlantic Undergraduate Research Conference (MAURC) at Virginia Tech. This conference is a unique opportunity for undergraduates to come together with professionals from varying scientific fields and share their passion for research. Our team created this conference because we believe in encouraging the collaboration of knowledge in order to facilitate advancement within areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  We recognize that given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the undergraduate research community hasn’t gotten many opportunities to share their work at research conferences. Recognizing this, we want to offer a virtual platform where students like you can present your research while also hearing from amazing speakers in different STEM fields.


MAURC is scheduled for March 25-27, 2021, which will offer undergraduate researchers the opportunity to participate in virtual poster presentations, career and professional developmental panels, and networking events with various companies and industry leaders. You can look forward to hearing from our phenomenal keynote speaker, Dr. Mark Gerstein, Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Yale School of Medicine. Additional Speakers featured at our panels and networking events will include Dr. Monica Arienzo (Desert Research Institute), Dr. Raffaele Ferrari (MIT), Dr. Jordan Ellenberg (UW-Madison). We look forward to hearing about your research at 2021 MAURC!


Applications Deadline: extended to a “rolling” basis, the last day applications will be accepted: January 29, 2021
