Undergraduate Research Conference

The Undergraduate Research Conference is an annual event that gives students the opportunity to present their research to the local section. The 2022 Conference will be held in-person at St. Ambrose University. While the conference is sponsored by the Illinois-Iowa Section of the American Chemical Society, you do not have to be a member of the ACS to attend. Likewise, you are welcome to present any scientific research conducted at the undergraduate level, as the conference is not limited to chemistry projects.
