You can work with faculty on already established projects or create your own. Research allows you to delve more deeply into a specific area of interest, and you can receive hands on experience to determine if you would like to pursue advanced study in a certain subject area. Research experience is also highly valuable for students who are interested in attending a graduate or professional school and allows you to obtain more meaningful letters of recommendation from faculty. It is very important to be proactive and discuss your interest in research with our faculty.
About the Conference UC Davis undergraduates in all academic fields are invited to submit an abstract and registration information to participate in the Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Conference.
Research projects must have been conducted under the supervision of a faculty member or professional in the field. The conference is designed to acquaint undergraduates with the process and academic rigors of presenting research in a scholarly manner.
Additionally, the conference will stimulate interaction between students and faculty, while encouraging undergraduates to pursue advanced degrees toward the goal of research and college teaching.
Students will present their research projects to faculty, staff and other conference participants in either an oral or poster format. The oral presentation will allow students to give a minute presentation of their topic and includes time for questions.
Each oral session will be moderated by a faculty member. In the poster session, students will have designed a visual poster representing their research and will be presenting their work to individual conference participants over a 60 minute session. While participating in research provides excellent preparation for graduate study, presenting your work at this conference will further enhance your experience and become even more valuable as you are considered for admission to graduate or professional schools.The Innovation Institute for Food & Health (IIFH) Undergraduate Research Fellowship is an award intended to support undergraduate students performing research with guidance by UC Davis faculty that relates to the mission of the IIFH to catalyze innovation across food, agriculture and health.
