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. 

Registration to present at MURC 2017 is now officially closed. To prepare for your MURC oral and poster presentations, check our resources page.

Who presents at MURC?
