Explore Symposium

UCSF Summer Explore Symposium 

The Explore Symposium is an annual scientific poster presentation for students of the Summer Explore program. 

Dean Talmadge King will present awards to winners of the Short-Term Dean’s Prize for Research and Scholarship, and students will have the chance to learn from their research process and outcomes. 

The event will include time for students and faculty to view the research posters that the students in the class of 2021 completed over the summer and to help us choose our “best in show” winners.  The event will conclude with a hosted reception by the SET Team and Dean Lee Jones!
