Welcome to the tenth Annual Erickson Undergraduate Research Conference!

This is the tenth year that the Erickson conference has been held at Seattle Pacific University and it continues to showcase the outstanding research contributions our students are making in the fields of Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Physics. Our students presentations range from single quarter classroom based original research projects to summative multi-year independent research programs. Please join us in this celebration of student research and support your friends as they present the findings of their individual research projects.

The organizers of this years conference would like to thank Joyce Erickson for the legacy she has left our students by establishing this conference. We would also like to thank all the students who have participated in this conference over the years to make it so succesful. Thank you!

All students attending or presenting at the conference who complete an evaluation form will be entered into a drawing to win a Kinect gaming system donated by Microsoft. You must be present to win so be sure to come and fill out that form!

Thank you,

The Erickson Organizing Committee
