  Expo Flyer2014         2013 Expo                    

The 7th Annual UAB EXPO showcases the research and creative scholarly work produced by undergraduates in UAB programs ranging in science and technology to art and film-making. The Expo also provides a forum for students, faculty, and the UAB community to discuss cutting edge research and creative topics and to examine the connection between research, education, creative activities, and experiential learning. The Expo includes poster and oral presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines and departments across the UAB campus. Those not yet in engaged in research are encouraged to attend and learn about the broad range of opportunities available at UAB.

All UAB undergraduates involved in research and creative activities are encouraged to apply and those not yet involved in research will discover that attending the Expo is a great way to learn about the broad range of opportunities available at UAB. In 2013, nearly 300 undergraduates participated in the Expo, with more than 400 people attending.
