Biology Research Colloquium – 2021

The Department of Biology asks for information on student presentations for two reasons: to prepare the program for the Department Colloquium, and to gather information on student participation in research. We appreciate your filling out this form to help us with both those goals.

In cases with multiple students contributing to one project, we hope to have all student researchers provide information on their participation, but only need each project submitted once. If you are part of a multi-student team, please choose one person to submit the full information on the poster (along with their own information). That person should also provide the email addresses of other student researchers, who will then be sent a link to submit their own information. Our record of participation in the Colloquium is based on those submissions, so please be sure all involved students complete the process.

The deadline for registration is TBA.

Project Information

Use sentence case. Follow standard formatting conventions (e.g. italic for species names).
Example: Evolution of ornamentation in Escherichia coli via sexual selection.
Use initials and last name. List all names that will appear on the poster, including your own. Use bold to indicate Creighton undergraduate authors, and asterisks or other markers if needed to associate authors with affiliations.
Example: F. Al-Hiyaly*, H. Ishihara*, and F.C. Mendoza**.
Department and institution are normally included. Use asterisks or other markers as needed to associate authors with authors. Asterisks are not needed if all authors are from the same institution.
Example: *Department of Biology, Creighton University and Pharmacology and **Experimental Neuroscience, UNMC
Your abstract should provide brief background information on the problem, hypotheses or objectives of the study, methods, results, and conclusions. There is a 200 word limit.
Optional message to the coordinator about the project information:
