Murdock College Science Research Conference

Each fall, the Trust and a different Northwest private college or university co-host a research conference associated with the Murdock College Science Research Program. The conference focuses on sharing and advancing new knowledge in the natural sciences created or discovered through collaborative faculty-student research.

Attendance at this conference is by invitation. Oral and poster research presentations by students form the core of the conference, and a talk by a nationally recognized research scientist is also presented.

To request an invitation or additional information, email Dr. Moses Lee, Program Director for Research and Science, or call 360-694-8415.


The 2018 conference will take place on November 9-10 at the Hilton Hotel Convention Center in Vancouver, WA. This year the conference will be co-hosted with Linfield College. The theme for this year’s conference is “The Power of Undergraduate Research: Creating New Knowledge and Enhancing Student Learning.”

Registration is now live. Participating institutions should have received an invitation to register with more information via email. See the preliminary agenda here.
