Princeton Research Day 2024

Princeton Research Day is a celebration of early-career research and creative works by undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and other early-career researchers and creators. Presenters from across campus divisions develop their ability to communicate complex topics to broad, nonspecialist audiences through the creation of three-minute videos published online starting May 3, 2024 and optional poster presentations for the in-person event on May 9, 2024.

Attendees can speak with presenters to learn about the diverse scholarly and creative work taking place at Princeton and vote for their favorite poster presentation at the annual showcase, which will be held 12 to 1:30 p.m. on May 9. The showcase will be followed by a reception from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Finally, attendees can view award-winning videos with Q&As from awardees and find out who won awards for best posters during the PRD Mainstage event from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

PRD is open to the public. It is produced by the offices of the Dean of the College, the Dean of the Graduate School, the Dean for Research, and the Vice President for Campus Life, with support from the offices of the Dean of the Faculty and the Provost.
