Learn more about the 2020 Summer Expo.
The UAB EXPO celebrates excellence in research, creative activity and scholarship by showcasing the academic endeavors of undergraduate students. This provides a platform for practicing and strengthening presentation skills, sharing work, engaging with like-minded peers, exchanging research experiences and ideas as well as receiving feedback from both peers and faculty. In addition to this being a positive experience overall, it becomes an impressive addition to any resume when applying for fellowships and research placements. We hope that you will participate with your research and services and we certainly look forward to you joining us on the day!
