Undergraduate Research Week

On November 16, 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives declared a week in April as "Undergraduate Research Week." The Council for Undergraduate Research (CUR) designates one week in April each year as Undergraduate Research Week.  

To celebrate, Case Western Reserve University organizes events to honor and recognize the phenomenal undergraduate research done by undergraduate students. Details about Undergraduate Research Week 2023 will be available next spring.

Check out how we celebrated Undergraduate Research Week 2022:

Beyond the Lab: Journal Clubs

The CWRU Journal Club will give an introduction to the nature and prevalence of journal clubs, which will be followed by a sample journal club meeting discussing a published paper on the relationship between hair growth and stress.


Intersections: SOURCE Symposium is where CWRU undergraduates present their research and creative projects. Intersections is an opportunity for the University community and others to see the broad and diverse work that is being done across campus by our outstanding undergraduates.
