Biomathematics Professor Keynotes for the 4th Annual Student Research Day
Launched in 2010 by the Office of Undergraduate Research, Research day has attracted an increasing number of students who crave opportunities to develop a deeper understanding of the subjects they study.
Participants majoring in the natural sciences, art, aviation, business, social work, theatre and most of York’s 40-plus other majors, conduct their research under the guidance of world-class faculty. These research discoveries culminate in a day-long display each spring ending with a compelling message from an invited guest speaker. The event is a popular feature of the college’s academic opportunities and will featured the research posters of more than 300 students this year.
Research Day has three components:
- Panel Presentations,
- Poster Presentations,
- and the Luncheon, which features students and the Keynote speaker.
This year’s speaker was Dr. Partha Mitra, Crick-Clay Professor of Biomathematics at the Cold Harbor Spring Laboratory and director of MitraLab. Dr. Mitra holds a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Harvard University.
