Research Poster Presentations

UH undergraduates who plan to present a poster should use a UH Branding-approved poster template, accessible here. Below are some helpful links when adding content to your poster. If you need assistance with poster design, please contact for guidance.

Responsible Conduct of Research

The Division of Research at the University of Research has compiled resources to help you learn about the responsible conduct of research and compliance policies. All researchers, including undergraduate researchers, must complete the CITI Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training before embarking on a research project, even mentored by a faculty sponsor.

Institutional Review Board

All undergraduate research projects involving human subjects (i.e., you will be observing, interviewing, or soliciting survey responses from people), MUST receive formal approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB) Office at the University of Houston before any data collection may occur. Learn more about research involving human subjects here and contact Ms. Nettie Martinez for student-led projects that need IRB approval. If you are unsure of whether your project requires IRB approval, it is always best to check and be certain.

All students conducting research at UH should complete the CITI training for the responsible conduct of research. As of Spring 2020, this training is required prior to requesting IRB approval and for participation in programs such as SURF, PURS, and Senior Honors Thesis. If you are unsure of which training to enroll in, Ms. Nettie Martinez can assist you.
