Faculty Research Day 2021

Friday, April 9, 2021

Since its revival as an annual event in 2011, UB Faculty Research Day has become the premier academic event on campus, providing a venue at which the diverse array of research undertaken by faculty and assisted by students is showcased. The goal of the event is to foster project collaborations between departments, schools, and colleges as research become increasingly interdisciplinary.

UB Faculty Research Day provides a place and time to show the results of faculty and student research from the past academic year. It is also an opportunity to share innovative ideas. Faculty and student collaborators are encouraged to submit posters highlighting completed and ongoing research projects. This year, as in the past, awards will be given to the best faculty, graduate, undergraduate, and high school posters.
