UNH's First Undergraduate Research Conference
In 1991, COLSA faculty recognized that an increasing number of undergraduate students were conducting research in faculty labs. Donna Brown, former director of the Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research, and COLSA faculty member Wayne Fagerberg decided that students should have the experience of a professional scientific conference where they could showcase research in collaboration with faculty mentors. COLSA is pleased that what was initially a science-based research conference has evolved into a university-wide event consisting of many individual conferences celebrating undergraduate research.
David Daggett, a presenter from the first conference in 1991, says this: "I've just finished my second post-doctorate here at UC Berkeley studying zebrafish. It was my experience at the COLSA undergraduate research conference that paved the way for me to pursue a career in research."
