gradcon 2020

GradCon (Graduate Student Research Conference) will be held in the University Center, 3rd Floor on Friday, February 28, 2020. UM GradCon is interdisciplinary and welcomes presentations from all disciplines and departments.

This year’s conference includes over 100 graduate student presentations and a luncheon panel discussion "Body, Mind & Spirit - A Conversation on Health & Humanities" sponsored by the Institute of Health and Humanities. The IHH’s Ridge Scholarship Awardees will be discussing their humanity-oriented approaches to research on health topics such as aging, homelessness, spinal cord injuries, and the ethics of parental decision-making in neonatal medicine.

Please come out and support UM’s graduate students at this all-day event. And remember that GradCon is free and open to the public – feel free to invite anyone and everyone! There will be coffee & snacks provided during the morning and afternoon oral presentation sessions, and a grab-n-go lunch during the panel discussion. In the evening, hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be available during the poster session and Best Of GradCon Awards.
