Student Research Day

Student Research Day will be held Tuesday, March 7, 2023.  This is a campus-wide venue for graduate and professional students, postdocs, and medical staff/fellows to present their research. Poster abstracts are due February 1, 2023, and the abstract form can be found below. Participants will receive their presentation times in February.  Students should plan to be at their poster during the assigned time period to interact with judges, faculty, and students. Posters will be judged on presentation, significance and novelty of objective, methodological approach, results, and conclusion, role in the project, and knowledge of the field.  Please make sure that poster orders are sent to Creative Services by February 1, 2023 following the poster guidelines here . Only one poster per student is allowed, and you must follow the guidelines listed on the webpage. The poster must be submitted to Creative Services by February 1, 2023 for printing.  Please remember you have to submit the abstract form AND the poster by the deadline. These are two different items that need to be submitted.  Posters must be the size and orientation listed on the Creative Services website. Times and locations to pick up printed posters will be sent at a later date. The poster presentations will be held on the Little Rock (I. Dodd Wilson Education Building) and Northwest campuses. Please email with any questions.
