Why participate in research?
Program for Undergraduate Research Experience
PURE is a program that helps provide students information about research in the Department of Biology, including the types of student research completed in previous semesters and also current research opportunities available.
Each semester we host a PURE Symposium on campus, where motivated student researchers can present their results. Participation in this symposium is optional, but strongly encouraged. Fellow students and faculty attend the symposium to learn more about the various ongoing research projects in the department. It also provides a great opportunity to give a scientific presentation (which also goes on your resume), become more comfortable with speaking professionally in a public setting, and explain with confidence the results of your scientific work.
