Student Research Day

Every Spring semester since 2005, SJSU student researchers who work on original research projects under the direction of College of Science (COS) faculty have presented their results in the COS Student Research Day. 

16th Annual College of Science Student Research Day

The 16th COS SRD will be on Friday, May 7, 2020 from 10:00am to 1:30pm. This year we will hold a basic virtual poster session using Zoom. There will be two 90 min sessions: Session A is from 10:00am to 11:30pm, and Session B from 11:45 to 1:15pm (the 15 min intermission is needed to set up a second set of breakout rooms). Each poster will be assigned a code in the program list of posters (e.g. A-1, A-2, A-3, B-1, B-2, etc). The Zoom invitation will be sent to the primary author on Thursday. When "arriving" at the SRD (just before it starts, the primary author will go to the room which is assigned to that poster, and share their screen with the poster visible. Other authors can also join the room as participants, and everyone can be available to answer questions with visitors. After Session A ends, the breakout rooms will be changed to Session B and that session will begin. The Zoom link to join SRD will be availbale soon.

The posters were staffed by the undergraduate and graduate students who performed the research. The projects displayed represented orginal research projects from the laboratories of COS faculty. Many of the projects are funded by federal, state or other grants, and will eventually lead to publications in scientific journals. Some of the posters had already been presented at national or international scientific conferences.

Each year, the COS Student Research Day showcases some of the broad range of research activity in the College of Science, and recognizes the opportunities that are available to our students, many of whom move into the workforce or continue on to graduate or professional schools. The research experience they gain as students proves to be invaluable in their careers in science. The student presenters are eager to describe and discuss their research projects and results! 

The campus community and public are invited to view the posters and talk to our student researchers, and the event is always free and open to the public.  For other accommodations, contact Dr. Roy Okuda (408-924-2525).
