Each Spring and Fall semester the Biology department at FMU hosts a P.U.R.E. symposium on campus, where motivated student researchers can present their results. Participation in this symposium is optional. The atmosphere of the symposium is a casual classroom environment, with fellow students and faculty in attendance. It provides a great opportunity to give a scientific presentation, become more comfortable with public speaking, and proudly put forth the results of your research!

As PURE coordinator I plan to continue scheduling the annual symposium before the week of final exams.

Each student's presentation should be 10-12 minutes long. We will allow 2 - 3 minutes after each talk for questions from the audience. Ideally, the presentation should be made with the use of PowerPoint, and presented on a computer.

The presentation does NOT need to include numerical data. For example, some students may present an overview of their development of a new technique, or on a piece of equipment they learned to use. The presentation can be either descriptive or quantitative (that is, include data analysis), as long as it is in regards to your work on a faculty-mentored research project. In addition, students from previous semesters are encouraged to present the results of their research experience, even if was done several semesters ago!

The deadlines for submitting an abstract for the symposium will be in late March or early April for the Spring, and late October for the Fall semester. Speak to me and your mentor about the specific dates that these summaries are due. Furthermore, if you have any questions at all about the PURE program or symposium feel free to contact me anytime.
