UT to host Midwest Graduate Research Symposium

Graduate students from across the Midwest will present their research at The University of Toledo this weekend.

The 8th Annual Midwest Graduate Research Symposium will take place 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, March 25 in the Memorial Field House. Students at the graduate and postdoctoral levels from multiple disciplines and universities will give oral and poster presentations of their research.

“We expect more than 200 graduate students from all over the region to be here at UT to showcase their research and network,” said David Barboza, member of the Graduate Student Association on UT’s Health Science Campus. “This event is unique because it consists of students from dozens of universities representing a variety of disciplines, including psychology, engineering, chemistry, medicine, art, natural sciences and more.”

This year 65 schools were invited to the symposium, which is run by UT’s Graduate Student Association. For the first time, undergraduate students are eligible to attend this year.

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Emmitt Jolly, a biologist from Case Western Reserve University.

The symposium also includes professional development seminars, panel discussions, an awards ceremony and a formal dinner.

Presentations are judged by faculty from various universities.
