    Peek into the Future of Research: Duquesne Hosts Undergraduate Research Symposium

    Apr. 4, 2012

    An Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium at Duquesne University highlights more than 80 student research projects. Top submissions will earn awards and prizes in this fourth annual event, including the new Excellence in Research in the Basic Sciences and Excellence in Sustainability. Submissions from nearly every school on campus provide a global view of research occurring today.

    Brian Butko, alumnus, author and director of publications at the Sen. John Heinz History Center, will present the keynote.
