Kinesiology Undergraduate Research Forum

What is a Kinesiology Research Forum?

A Kinesiology Research Forum is a 90 minute event designed to provide undergraduate students insight into the broad array of research being conducted within the School of Kinesiology.  By connecting with faculty and research opportunities in all five Kinesiology streams (Neuromechanical; Psychology of Sport, Physical Activity & Health; Socio-Cultural Studies; Systems Biology, Exercise & Health; Education for Physical Activity, Health, and Sport) you can expand your learning community, gain exposure to ground breaking research and find out about different ways you can get KINvolved and KINnected with research.

What is the event format?
Faculty and graduate students, for multiple labs and streams, will deliver brief presentations to highlight their current research and provide opportunities at the end for questions.  Research forums are a great venue for undergraduate students to hear from all areas of Kinesiology research over the duration of a lunch time period.
