URSI Symposium takes place Wed, Sept 25
Since 1986, the Undergraduate Research Summer Institute (URSI) has shown hundreds of students the wonders of scientific discovery through high-level research with faculty mentors. Each summer, students and faculty collaborate in an intensive ten-week program, designing and shaping their views of the world with exciting explorations, rigorous experimentations, and critical analyses. Join us at the 34th annual URSI Symposium on Wed, Sept 25 starting at 3pm in the Villard Room as we celebrate the accomplishments of the nearly 100 Vassar students and faculty who participated in URSI this past summer. In addition to student talks and poster session, there will be a keynote address entitled "Harnessing Virus Biodiversity to Solve Human Problems" by Paul Turner, Elihu Chair of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University and faculty member in Microbiology at Yale School of Medicine. A full program can be found on the URSI website.
