Graduate Research Symposium

Every fall, the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the Graduate Student Advisory Council host a Graduate Research Symposium.

The symposium allows graduate students to present their work in the form of either a poster or an oral presentation. Research areas include a range of topics, such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, computational science, and energy applications.

Invited judges are typically Illinois alumni from industry and academia who help us identify the best poster and oral presentations. The symposium also provides students with one-on-one opportunities to network with the judges.

The 2018 symposium will be on Friday, October 12 in Roger Adams Laboratory. Applications are currently being accepted. Interested students are asked to submit an abstract and brief bio to Please also indicate if you will prepare a poster or oral presentation. The deadline to register is Aug. 24.
