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 2016 took place over three days hosting over 230 presentations and 350 undergraduate presenters.
