The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is currently accepting submissions for the 2013 Posters on the Hill Event. During this event, undergraduate researchers are selected to exhibit their research on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. According to CUR, "this event helps members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact."
In 2011, undergraduate researchers Daphne Allyn Guinn and Jennifer Miller and their faculty advisor, Dr. Jeff Weidenhamer, represented Ashland University and the State of Ohio with their poster "Cadmium contamination of consumer products: An emerging threat to children’s health."
Abstracts are due by November 1, 2012. You can learn more about this event and how to submit an abstract by clicking here.
