Math & Science Department (SURI)

 

Concordia University's Summer Undergraduate Research Institute (SURI) was started in 2010 by Dr. Michael Godsey and his work in protein biochemistry. Since then, the summer program has grown to include a variety of different research topics.

Each fall Concordia students who have participated in SURI share their research at the annual Murdock College Science Research Conference. The conference focuses on sharing and advancing new knowledge in the natural sciences that were created or discovered through collaborative faculty-student research.
