The Harvard Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Science (HUROS) Fair (previously known as the LSURF) is an annual poster session during which Harvard-affiliated laboratories and research groups showcase their current research projects to Harvard College undergraduates. Groups come from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard Medical School, the Broad Institute, the Arnold Arboretum, and Harvard-affiliated hospitals, including Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, McLean Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

The workshop will provide information for Harvard undergraduates on how to prepare and plan their time at the HUROS research fair, and how to engage with researchers and faculty at the event.

 

FAQs 

What is the Harvard Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Science (HUROS) Fair?
The HUROS Fair is an annual poster session where Harvard-affiliated laboratories showcase their current research projects to Harvard College undergraduates. Groups come from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering, Harvard Medical School, the Broad Institute, and Harvard-affiliated hospitals, including Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, McLean Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Why do we organize the HUROS?
The HUROS facilitates scientific discussions between Harvard undergraduates and Harvard graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and other researchers. The fair is an effective way both for undergraduates to meet many scientists and learn about their cutting-edge life sciences research and for scientists to describe and explain their experimental approaches. The fair benefits both undergraduates and Harvard’s life science researchers. Many undergraduates report finding a host lab at the fair, and the Harvard scientists who present a poster relish the chance to speak with a large number of undergraduates, some of whom join their research groups.

When is the HUROS?
HUROS 2017 will be held on November 9, 2017 from 2:30-4:30pm. This timing gives students time to find a host lab and apply for summer research fellowships, which typically have deadlines in January, February, or March.

Where is the HUROS?
HUROS 2017 will be held at the Knafel Center located at 10 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA.

Student Registration: will be available in early October 2017.

Presenter Registration and Abstract Submission: abstract submission and presenter registration will be available in September 2017.

When can I set up my poster?
Presenters can set up their posters starting at 1:45 pm.

What size should my poster be?
Our poster boards are 3'X4', so we can accommodate posters that are either 3'X4' or 4'X3'. However, if you have much a larger poster we can put 2 poster boards together (or you can have 2 separate poster boards depending on what you want to present). 

How do I print my HUROS poster?
Posters can be printed in the following places on campus and of campus locations such as FedEx. Individuals submitting abstracts are responsible for poster printing fees.
