National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC), 2020

Harvard University
Boston, MA
January 24-26, 2020

NCRC is a large-scale, multidisciplinary forum held annually at Harvard University, where the most accomplished undergraduate students from across the United States and internationally convene each year to share their research in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The core vision behind our conference is to provide student researchers with the opportunity to hear from the world’s leading authorities in academia, policy, and industry, as well as to foster important exchanges and dialogue between students. Last year, after being selected through a competitive application process, over 200 participants from nearly 75 universities across America and abroad attended our conference. Through NCRC, we hope to expand the perspective of undergraduate researchers through offering exposure to diverse fields and to facilitate the discourse on collaboration, leadership, and social impact in research that we believe will be invaluable in future pursuits.

This year, we are honored to host speakers Dr. Claudia Goldin (Henry Lee Professor of Economics at Harvard University), Dr. Emery Brown (Warren M. Zapol Professor of Anaesthesia at Harvard Medical School), Dr. Jeremy Berg (Professor of Computational and Systems Biology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine), Dr. Suzanne Blier (Allen Whitehill Clowes Professor of Fine Arts and of African and African American Studies at Harvard University), Dr. Cass. R. Sunstein (Robert Walmsley Professor at Harvard Law School) and Dr. George Church (Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and Professor of Health Sciences and Technology at Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
