Undergraduate Research in the Molecular Sciences (URMS)

  • The Undergraduate Research in the Molecular Sciences (URMS) is held every year. It brings together up to 100 participants from 11 colleges and universities to share their oral and poster presentations. These presentation are done by undergraduates and compete for travel awards to the national conferences of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) and the American Chemical Society.
