BRITE Students Antonio Shallowhorn and Justin Kwok Selected to Present at Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference (PURC)
The Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference (PURC), was established in 1992 by Dr Elizabeth Bjork to give students an opportunity to develop their presentation skills and share their research efforts with peers and colleagues. Since then PURC has steadily grown in the number of applicants and in visibility and now includes students from across the country doing research in a number of areas including Behavioral Neuroscience, Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Health Psychology, Learning and Behavior, Quantitative Methods, and Social Psychology. Students presenting at PURC are selected based on the competitiveness of their application.

The Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference is scheduled to take place Friday, May 10, 2013 in Kerckhoff Hall from 9:30 am – 4:00 pm.
