Presentation CoverThe CCB Undergraduate Research Symposium, which celebrates the academic achievements of our undergraduate students, was held virtually once again.

The Symposium, organized by the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology in collaboration with Rutgers-New Brunswick Office of the Provost and Rutgers-New Brunswick Libraries, was held on April 30th through Webex video conferencing. It featured both synchronous and asynchronous components.

Participating seniors presented their posters via personal Webex rooms. Participants' posters and pre-recorded videos were on display for review, and students were available in real time to engage and respond to questions about their presentations.
