Congratulations to the 2019 PURC award winners

PURC 2019

On March 29 and 30, the UBC Psychology community came together to celebrate undergraduate student research at the 21st Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference (PURC).

PURC provides a professional environment for our undergraduate students to showcase their work and experience presenting at a scientific conference. Students also receive recognition in the categories of best oral and poster presentation.

“I couldn’t be more excited about the research that our undergrads are doing. Our students are involved in so much impactful research, and I congratulate all the presenters on a job well done!”
