Workshops and other research skill-building opportunities
2021 Global Health Research Showcase, October 25th, 12-1:30pm in Trent Semans Center, Great Hall
Join us as Duke students from all academic levels present posters on their global health research projects and experiences in a casual, small-group setting. We're very excited for students to once again have this invaluable opportunity to share their work and receive feedback face-to-face with mentors and peers, and are hopeful members of the Duke community will come by to chat with the students, provide valuable feedback and show them the support they deserve after a difficult year.
The event will be divided into two parts, with half of the students presenting up until 12:45 and half presenting after. You will have the opportunity to explore the posters at your own pace. You will be amazed to see the work they’ve done despite so many challenges due to the pandemic.

Significant Annual Undergraduate Conferences:
NCRC is a large-scale, multidisciplinary conference held annually at Harvard University, where accomplished undergraduate students from across the United States and internationally convene each year to share their research in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The core vision behind the conference is to provide student researchers with the opportunity to hear from the world’s leading authorities in academia, policy, and industry, as well as to foster important exchanges and dialogue between students. Last year, after being selected through a competitive application process, over 200 participants from nearly 75 universities across America and abroad attended the conference. NCRC, hopes to expand the perspective of undergraduate researchers through offering exposure to diverse fields and to facilitate the discourse on collaboration, leadership, and social impact in research that will be invaluable in future pursuits.
