WVU’s third annual Research Week is set to showcase and celebrate the high-caliber research by faculty, staff and students that shapes us as the state’s only R1 institution.

Sponsored by the Research Office and the Office of the Provost, Research Week will begin Monday (April 12), with events each day through Saturday (April 17). 

The more than two dozen events will include the celebration of long-form scholarship produced by faculty and staff, the Undergraduate Research Symposium and a presentation of the National Science Foundation’s National Science Board Vision 2030 report. 

President Gordon Gee and Vice President for Research Fred King will also toast Sarah Burke-Spolaor, assistant professor of astronomy, for being one of 128 young faculty members from the U.S. and Canada to receive the competitive Sloan Fellowship.
