April 11th through 15th was the 5th Annual Exhibition of Excellence in Undergraduate Research, or simply Research Week, as it has come to be known. During the weeklong series of events, student recipients of Undergraduate Research Scholar Awards present their research at a poster exhibition open to the community. Judges from UT Dallas determine who will move on to the finals. The poster contest finals will be held April 27th – in the meantime, enjoy some photos from the event.
