Jen Liu, Phoebe Ng, and Pushpkiran Ubi – all undergraduate students completing Directed Studies projects in the Weinberg lab – presented their preliminary results at this year’s Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC) at UBC. MURC is one of the largest undergraduate research conferences in North America, and is an opportunity for UBC undergraduate students to showcase their research in front of their fellow UBC students, family, and friends. Congrats you three!
