Programs sponsored by Rutgers and UMDNJ engage students across the USA to science and engineering

WHAT: The annual RiSE Research Symposium, sponsored by the RiSE program (Research in Science and Engineering) at Rutgers and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey) and by affiliated Rutgers summer undergraduate research programs. 

WHO: RiSE students from colleges and universities around the country, their Rutgers and UMDNJ faculty mentors, and keynote speaker Michael Anderson, an alumnus of the Rutgers Graduate School-New Brunswick PhD program in biomedical engineering, class of 1999. He will talk about “How We Hear: New Research on How the Brain Determines the Location of Sound.”

WHERE: The CoRE Building on Rutgers University’s Busch Campus, 96 Frelinghuysen Road, Piscataway, N.J.

 BACKGROUND:  RiSE is jointly sponsored by two of the nation's leading public research institutions – Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). The students whose work is presented in this symposium are competitively selected from colleges and universities across the United States and Puerto Rico, and their research covers the span of science and engineering, from neuroscience to nanotechnology. The mission of RiSE and is to provide genuine scientific and engineering research experiences for undergraduates from backgrounds, regions and institutions historically underrepresented in scientific and engineering research
