IRIS: Integrating Research in Science, an innovative student-led conference, aims to celebrate interdisciplinary interactions by bringing together the realms of STEM and STEM-related fields. This one-day conference for undergraduates will allow students to promote their research, to network among professors and peers, and to enhance their professional and academic skills with practical workshops. By participating in IRIS, students engage in a collaborative environment that harbors values in creating a strong sense of community. Moreover, by bringing many departments and students with different interests together, students will explore new ideas within a diverse range of fields and be able to delve into the rich progress cross-disciplinary interactions have to offer. We wish for attendees to open their mind and break the barriers that margin STEM fields.
“The distinctions between sciences are artificial – an approach from one area can be applied to another”
