Jefferson-Sigma Xi Student Research Day-Wed. March 22, 2017

January 20th, 2017
Sigma Xi Student Research Day


Each spring, the Thomas Jefferson University Chapter of Sigma Xi organizes a Student Research Day. The main focus of this day is poster presentations by undergraduate, graduate and medical students. The poster session offers students the opportunity to interact with colleagues and faculty, to win prizes, to catch up on current scientific discoveries, to learn about new areas of research, and to practice networking and scientific presentation skills.

This year the TJU Student Research Day will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017.

Princeton undergraduate students are encouraged to submit posters of their research.

Poster presentations will be judged by TJU scientists and cash prizes will be awarded for the best poster in each research category, including the undergraduate student category.
Undergraduate students and advisers will also have the opportunity to attend an information session with the Jefferson College of Biomedical Sciences Admissions to discuss learn more about graduate education at Jefferson.

The poster session will be followed by the annual William Potter Lecture at 4:00 pm. We are excited to announce that the 2017 Potter Lecture will be given by Arthur Lander, MD, PhD, Donald Bren Professor of Developmental and Cell Biology at the University of California, Irvine, and Director of the Center for Complex Biological Systems, an NIGMS National Center for Systems Biology.   Students and their advisers are cordially invited to the reception at the conclusion of the awards ceremony.
