At Summer Research Day, the 33 TIP Innovation Fellows and 31 Health Research Program participants will share what they have learned about research and innovation through poster and oral presentations. It is a wonderful opportunity to talk with enthusiastic, engaged UConn students who have been immersed in a wide variety of innovative projects this summer, and to hear how their experience is supporting their personal growth and career exploration.
The TIP Innovation Fellows program pairs UConn undergraduate and graduate students with startup companies in UConn's TIP incubator for mentored summer research fellowships in Business and STEM areas. 19 TIP companies are participating as mentors for the TIP Innovation Fellows this year.
The Health Research Program connects UConn undergraduates with UConn Health researchers who are conducting research of all types, from public health to neuroscience. 31 faculty are providing mentored summer research experiences this year.
Summer Research Day will be held on Friday, July 29, 2022, from 9:30am to 2:30pm in the Academic Rotunda at UConn Health.
