The 2021 Virtual Student Research Conference is an annual event at UVM each spring
The Student Research Conference showcases the breadth of research conducted by UVM undergraduate and graduate students across a variety of academic disciplines. All UVM students are encouraged to participate either by registering and submitting a research presentation, viewing and interacting with presentations online, or broadening their network by connecting with participants across disciplines. The Student Research Conference took place virtually this year from April 15th-18th, however, presentations are still availbale to view by accessing the links to the left of this page.
