New Post–HHMI Program Survey for all apprentices

November 22, 2009 9:17 AM    Posted by: kbhartney

This survey is for participants in HHMI-sponsored undergraduate research programs at Cal Poly Pomona between 1992 and the present. We have been tracking the career and professional paths of our program participants since 1993. The new on-line form will hopefully facilitate our annual efforts to contact you. The information you provide will be used in our annual report to the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

To access the on-line form, log in to the HHMI Members area and then click the Post–HHMI Program Survey link. We encourage you to complete this survey at least once each year to help us in preparing our annual report to HHMI. If you need assistance logging in to the Members area, please contact Dr. Kristine Hartney at

College of Science: 2006 Undergraduate Research Symposium

February 28, 2006 1:44 PM    Posted by: dmzimmerman

Sent on Robert Manalu’s behalf:

Dear student scientists,

Science Council, with the support from Dr. Burke, Dr. Kageyama, and Dean Straney, will host the College of Science: Undergraduate Research Symposium on May 12, 2006. The opportunity to present is given to any students who are performing a scientific research under the College of Science. Many of our curriculums require a senior project as a capstone course; thus, this event will then be the ideal situate to present your works.

Students can present their works through poster or orally (10-15 minutes + Q&A). Posters will be placed on the byway between building 3 and 4. Oral will be presented in conference rooms (1st and 2nd floor) in building 4.

We are very enthused in making this event a success. The registration form is attached to this e-mail. Hard copy of registration form and abstract is due by 5pm on April 14 in building 3, room 218. In addition, please send the registration form, abstract, and your Fridays schedule for Spring quarter to For HHMI students, also send the registration form and abstract to

We look forward to your registration!

Student Research Poster Session

February 27, 2006 6:04 PM    Posted by: dmzimmerman

One of the priorities of the Research Council is to encourage faculty to provide opportunities for students to participate in research and creative activities. This is frequently achieved through Senior Projects for undergraduates, and in the thesis work of graduate students.

On February 21, 2006, the Research Council and the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs jointly hosted a Student Research Poster Presentation. Students presented their work at the competition in a variety of creative formats within a 4’ x 4’ space. The display was held from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Bronco Student Center, Ursa-Major Suite, 2nd Floor. Cash prizes were awarded for first and second place in each category with five or more entries.

For more information, please email Carol Keating at in the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs, Bldg 1, Room 224 or 225A.
