The Undergraduate Engineering Research Day (UnERD)

We have partnered with UnERD (located at the University of Toronto) for 2017 and 2018.
For the 2016 UnERD, the STEM Fellowship Journal sponsored the publication of one manuscript. The nominated student was Chris J. Zhang, who then published the following research project: In Vivo Potential of Manganese Chelated Porphysomes as MRI Contrast Agents.

For the 2017 UnERD, the STEM Fellowship Journal agreed to offered a 50% fee waiver to publish one manuscript, and to publish two graphical abstracts (at no cost to UnERD or the student). So far, Kelvin Chow (an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto’s Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering) has published a graphical abstract illustrating his lab’s work: Development of Visual Feedback Training Using Functional Electrical Stimulation Therapy for Balance Rehabilitation.
