Undergrads Present Research at Fourth Annual Conference

More than 100 students from 44 different institutions in 19 U.S. states, Washington D.C., and two Canadian provinces converged on Knoxville on Nov. 17-18 to present their research at the fourth annual Undergraduate Research Conference at the Interface of Mathematics and Biology, hosted by NIMBioS.

Keynote speaker was Dr. Christine Heitsch, an associate professor in mathematical biology at Georgia Tech and former NIMBioS advisory board member, who spoke about the combinatorics of RNA viruses.

A lively stream of “tweets” took place on Twitter with the hashtag #urc12. All tweets from the conference are curated on NIMBioS’ Storify page. A full set of photos from the conference can be viewed here.
