About

The McMaster Undergraduate Research in Science Association is a student club at McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario) dedicated to the promotion and facilitation of undergraduate access to research in science. Since 2011 we have helped McMaster undergrads find opportunities to actively conduct scientific research and celebrate excellence in undergraduate research. We aim to reach students in all departments in science, health science, kinesiology, engineering and anyone else interested in scientific research. We are an official student club affliated with the McMaster Students Union and have been ratified for the 2016-2017 academic year.
