What is MURC?

MURC is a conference for UBC undergraduate students to showcase their research in front of their fellow UBC students, family, and friends. Researchers may choose one of two formats to showcase their research: presentation or poster.

MURC 2015 is happening today!

Opening Session: Check-in at the UBC Old Auditorium (6344 Memorial Rd).

If you arrive after the Opening Session (10:45 am), please check in at the 'Ask Me' booth in the second floor floyer of the Irving K Barber Learning Centre (1961 East Mall)
