Research Re-do International Academic Webinar Series

June 24 - 26, 2020
7:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. CDT

LSU’s SCI LEAD Council is hosting “Research Re-Do,” an international academic webinar to showcase a broad spectrum of research from students throughout the world. Presentations will take place June 24th through 26th, from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. CDT.

“Research Re-Do” is presented by the LSU College of Science SCI Lead Council in response to the unfortunate loss of scheduled presentation opportunities for students around the world. This platform is free and open to researchers across disciplines and universities. Each approved presenter will provide a 10-minute presentation, followed by five minutes of moderated Q&A.

All majors welcome!

Registration is now closed.
