2015 Research Fair

The 2015 Graduate Student Poster Session, a celebration highlighting graduate student research and creative activity, was held on April 14, 2015 as part of the campus-wide 2015 Spring UNL Research Fair. The purpose of this yearly event is to give students the opportunity to showcase their research or creative activity; to communicate their results to other students, faculty and staff; and to learn about other areas of research and creative activity. The event is sponsored by the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of Graduate Studies.   2015 UNL Research Fair – all Energy Center participants
