Wisconsin Lutheran College invites high school students, undergraduates, teachers, and professors to present or attend the second-annual Milwaukee-area Undergraduate Biology Research Conference. This one-day event will include poster and oral presentations along with a keynote speaker and lunch. A local meeting is a great opportunity to learn about and exchange exciting research ideas, meet student and faculty colleagues at nearby schools, and hone presentation skills.

Undergraduate and high school students researching biomedical science, cell biology, ecology, plant biology, microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, marine biology, or other related subjects are encouraged to register.
