Macquarie Undergraduate students present their amazing research in poster form! MURI and the Learning Innovation Hub invite you to join us for lunch, a chance to browse the posters, and meet other like-minded students and staff interested in the expanding possibilities of Undergraduate Research.

These free events are open to all members of the Macquarie University community, students and staff.

Please register below to attend – and also email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in presenting (student involvement encouraged!).
