Princeton Research Day 2023 

Princeton Research Day

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, non-specialist audiences through the creation of 3-minute videos published online starting May 5, 2023 and optional poster presentations for the in-person event.

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 Research & Creative Endeavors Showcase (12:00-1:30 p.m.). The showcase will be followed by the Presenter Reception and Cupcake Celebration (1:30-2:30 p.m.). Finally, attendees can view award-winning videos with Q&A from awardees and find out who won awards for best posters during the PRD Mainstage event (2:30-4:15 p.m.).

PRD is open to the public, and we anticipate a highly interactive day with a great many opportunities for attendees and presenters alike to connect around their shared investment in the discoveries, stories, and passions of Princeton researchers and artists. Thank you in advance for your support of this exciting event!

Sponsors: Princeton Research Day is produced by the offices of the Dean of the College, the Dean of the Graduate School, the Dean for Research, the Vice President for Campus Life, with support from the offices of the Dean of the Faculty and the Provost.
