We are very pleased to announce that the 7th Annual Research Horizons Campus-wide Virtual Student Poster Session and Research Week will be held on the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s campus during the week of March 12-19, 2021. These events serve to celebrate, promote and recognize the research and creative scholarship of students at UAH.
