The annual ACSSA-sponsored Undergraduate Research Symposium in Chemistry and Biochemistry is the key platform for undergraduate researchers in the chemical sciences to present their work to our academic community at UC San Diego.

We encourage ALL students – regardless of year or study or stage of research - to take advantage of this opportunity to practice scholarly communication, to receive feedback from faculty and peers, and to make new professional connections. See below for additional symposium details.

The symposium will comprise a poster session and reception (4:00-6:00 PM in the NSB Foyer), followed by a plenary speaker and awards ceremony (6:00-7:00 PM in NSB 1205). Both academic and industrial judges will be present to give feedback on student’s posters.

ALL participants will be awarded a certificate in recognition of their scholarship. Additionally, cash prizes will be granted to the top poster presentations in each of the five divisions, and to the student who displays the most proficient use of chemical information skills. We will also honor the recipients of the Departmental Mayer, Urey, and Perrin, and Kamen awards.

These awards, and the event itself, are made possible by the generous support of our Chemistry and Biochemistry Department, the Division of Physical Sciences, the ACS San Diego Section,UC San Diego Library, and sponsors from the local chemical industry.
