The pandemic may have altered research projects at the University of Michigan, but the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program was still able to implement a successful program to give first-year, second-year and transfer students hands-on research experience.

The program served more than a thousand undergraduate students who will showcase their work virtually April 22 at the UROP Spring Symposium, including some research projects related to COVID-19.

The event provides a unique window into the diverse research, scholarship and creative activities that represent all areas of study from U-M’s 19 colleges and schools, including community and national partners.

The symposium will consist of 20 Zoom breakout rooms offering seven or eight presentations simultaneously each hour. It is free and open to the public.
