Special Note for Expo
We know that research is an ever-changing process with various highs and pitfalls. Our goal is to put on the best expo we can, allowing for largest ease for presenters and space for all of us to work. Noting this, we cannot accept late submissions. With limited physical space and the various tasks that contributes to running a successful hybrid event, we will not be able to accommodate submissions after the deadline. Please help our office out and submit your research on time. We are here to help with every step of the process, just reach out and ask. Thank you!

Get Involved with the Expo

We are seeking judges and volunteers for the Expo! Judging the Expo provides students with a platform for practicing and strengthening presentation skills, sharing work, exchanging research experiences and ideas, as well as receiving feedback. In addition to this being a positive experience overall, it becomes an impressive addition to any resume when applying for fellowships and research placements.

Volunteers will assist with the setup and breakdown of the poster presentations, signing in presenters and judges, moderating oral presentations, and more. Please register all shifts that you are able to serve. All volunteers will receive a t-shirt!

Note: Undergraduate students are noteligible to judge the Expo. Only UAB faculty, staff, graduate students and local community members are eligible to judge. If you are an undergraduate student who would like to assist, please sign up to volunteer.
