2020 Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) Virtual Symposium: Part One

July 28, 2020, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm EDT

The 2020 Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) Virtual Symposium will showcase the amazing research conducted by this year’s cohort of rising scholars. Representing the social sciences, physical sciences and engineering, and the biological and health sciences, this year’s scholars worked with faculty members on virtual research projects that focused on a number of topics including, but not limited to: Racially Progressive Policies Within White Liberalism, SARS-CoV-2 Epitpoes for HLA-B Allotypes, Characterizing Biological Tissue With Machine Learning, and Latina Mother Activism and Reproductive Justice.

Given the number of students, presentations will occur over the course of two days—Tuesday July 28 and Wednesday July 29. Each day, 12 scholars will share their research twice—the first time between 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. and, again, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Divided into four presentation groups on both days, you will have the opportunity to hear from multiple students each hour.
