    Conference Presentations and Publications Involving SRP Student Researchers

    One benefit of the SRP is the opportunity for students to develop meaningful research "products" that enhance a student's professional development and provide resume-enhancing experiences that are highly valued by professional and graduate schools and employers. Such products may include conference presentations, co-authorship on peer-reviewed publications, patents and research products or applications themselves.
