Researchers in the first decade of their career have new resources and networking opportunities available at UM in 2024. The Emerging Researcher Spotlight Series is a six-part symposium providing a compelling look into new and developing areas of research inquiry at UM.

Featuring presentations researchers in the early and middle stages of their professional research journey that will highlight important topics representing a wide range of disciplines and Faculties. Hosted by the Vice-President (Research and International) Office, each event will include presentations from five or more emerging experts as well as opportunities for networking and cross-departmental collaboration.

“This event is an exciting opportunity for networking among researchers working to establish new projects and programs at UM,” said Dr. Annemieke Farenhorst, Associate Vice-President (Research).  “Groundbreaking research is taking place every day in our community, and I hope that all researchers will join us to foster new collaborations between our labs and Faculties.
