Beginning in the 2021-22 academic year, Hopkins Office of Undergraduate Research (HOUR) will be hosting DREAMS “Day of Undergraduate Research in Engineering, the Arts & Humanities, Medicine and the Sciences” twice a year in the fall and spring semesters. The Nu Rho Psi’s Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS), which is usually held in the Fall semesters for students to present their research, is now handled by the HOUR Office. Behavioral Biology and Neuroscience students now have two opportunities through the HOUR Office in presenting your research or to fulfill your scientific presentation for Departmental Honors.

If you are currently working on research that you would like to use as part of the requirement for your departmental honors, please contact your faculty adviser or the department administrator to get more information. We look forward to this exciting collaborative opportunity to showcase undergraduate achievement!

Why you should present your research:

  • Part of the requirements for an honors designation in your department
  • Culmination of senior thesis projects
  • Recruitment of students as research assistants or for independent study
  • If your department or program is using the URD for another internal requirement
  • Preparing and presenting a poster is a great professional development experience.

How to Register

Contact the program administrator if you are a Neuroscience or Behavioral Biology student to let her know you will be participating.  You must register for DREAMS online if you plan to present your research.
