2024 CAMP Undergraduate Research Symposium

The Louis Stokes California Alliance for Minority Participation (CAMP) is an NSF-funded program shared across nine UC campuses (Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, San Diego, Riverside, and Merced). Its goal is to enhance diversity in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields at the PhD and faculty level by providing financial and professional development support to students from groups underrepresented in these fields.

The CAMP Symposium showcases undergraduate STEM research in from all nine UC campuses in the alliance. CAMP students who are supported by NSF-funded grants present the research they have performed under the guidance of a faculty mentor. The 2024 Symposium was held on February 3, 2024 at UC Riverside. Attendees from UCLA were led by Dr. Jorge Avila, the CAMP Administrative Director at UCLA. Several students were recognized with awards and Abigail Gutierrez, a 2022-2023 UCLA CAMP Scholar and NIH-funded Postbaccalaureate Researcher in the Lindsay De Biase lab, served as an Alumni Panelist.
