At Carleton we recognize that research done by our undergraduates is vitally important to Carleton’s success as a research intensive institution. Many of the projects you will see today will contribute data and ideas to scientific publications and/or presentations at conferences in Canada and around the world.

Opportunities to work in research labs and with our faculty and staff give our graduates the background and skills required for a broad range of careers and graduate programs. We hope you will enjoy the poster presentations prepared by students in the departments and institutes of Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Food Science, Earth Sciences, Environmental Science, Health Science, Integrated Sciences and Neuroscience.
