Thirty-five University of Rochester students have been selected to present their research at the National Conference of Undergraduate Research (NCUR). The annual conference will take place at Ithaca College from March 31 through April 2.

Founded in 1987, NCUR provides undergraduates from across the country the opportunity to share their independent, unique research with their peers and professors through presentations and poster sessions. This year, NCUR saw the most applications submitted for review in the conference's history, with the total number reaching more than 3,500. About 83 percent of applicants were selected to present their research.

"NCUR is an exciting opportunity for our students to show off their research, network, and learn about work going on elsewhere," says Steve Manly, a physics professor and the director of the Office of Undergraduate Research, which works with Rochester students applying for inclusion in the conference. "It's fun for me to accompany them, in part, because Rochester students make a great showing with quality research and presentations."
