Friday, April 9 - Poster Presentations
Students will be standing by their posters from 3:00 - 5:30 p.m.
Agricultural Science Building, 2nd and 3rd floors
Saturday, April 10 - Oral Presentations
8:15 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.

The symposium provides students with the opportunity to present their scholarly work in a friendly, yet professional, setting similar to national and international conferences. It also serves to promote cooperation and collegiality among CTAHR faculty and students.
“Those who attend the Student Research Symposium will be truly impressed by the breadth and depth of our students’ presentations,” said CTAHR Dean Andy Hashimoto. “Like CTAHR, the presentations span a broad spectrum of scholarly endeavors—from the most basic research in the biosciences through the application of science and engineering to solve critical problems dealing with food, energy, environmental, and economic security, to studies aimed at strengthening families and communities, and the creative arts. Each of the presentations represents a unique path that contributes to CTAHR’s mission of fostering viable communities, a diversified economy, and a healthy environment."
