Summer research interns from across the Johns Hopkins University campuses will present the results of their efforts in a poster session, Thursday, August 2 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Turner Concourse at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
Typically more than six dozen posters are presented. This year, Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology has 17 undergraduate summer research interns, the most they have ever hosted. Research presented will range from the basic sciences from students who worked at the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering to research findings of undergraduates working from the School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
Summer interns are sponsored by various entities, such as the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates program. The joint poster sessions allows them the opportunity to see what interns in the other groups have been working on. Most summer programs host students for 10-12 weeks of research. The students are mentored by faculty, postdoctoral fellows and doctoral students in their host labs. The poster session is free and open to the entire Hopkins community. Faculty, staff and students from all disciplines are encouraged to attend and ask the poster presenters questions about their results and experience.
