The University of Iowa's most talented undergraduate researchers showcased their work on July 26, 2017 at the 12th annual UI Summer Undergraduate Research Conference.

The conference, sponsored by the Graduate College, was at the Iowa Memorial Union's Main Lounge. The event was open to UI faculty, students and staff, and the public.

The conference is a culmination of the students' summer undergraduate research experiences at the UI. Since participants present their work to the university research community, the event serves as an important professional development opportunity for students preparing for careers in research.

One-third of the students are participants in the Graduate College's Summer Research Opportunity Program. The other summer undergraduate researchers are sponsored by several University departments and programs, and additional funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Defense, the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.

Students in these UI summer research programs work directly with faculty mentors. The research programs help the university recruit talented students, many of whom may choose to continue their work at the UI as graduate scholars.
