Science in Focus, a new series on the UCSF News Center, highlights the beauty of science at UCSF and the fascinating research taking place behind each image.

In each installment of the series, UCSF students and postdocs will explore the science that underlies some breathtaking images generated by researchers here at UCSF.

The Office for Postdoctoral Scholars is pleased to announce the finalists for the first-ever Postdoc Slam competition at UC San Francisco. Postdoc Slam is based on the popular “Grad Slam” contest for graduate students, which is now held at all ten campuses across the UC system. The contest challenges postdocs to present a compelling presentation of their research in three minutes or less, using language that not only their peers – but also non-scientists – will understand.

This year, the Graduate Division welcomed 56 undergraduate students to its 31st annual Summer Research Program. Program participants got to show off their research projects to the campus community through oral presentations and poster sessions in the Genentech Hall atrium in August. There, we asked three of this year’s students what they got out of their experience in the ten-week program.
