Papers & Presentations
CBLS encourages Kelley undergraduate students (on the Bloomington or Indianapolis campus) to research life sciences companies. We fund an Annual Undergraduate Business Award for the Best Life Sciences Research Paper. Papers should make significant contributions to our understanding of the life sciences industry.
Kelley professors may nominate up to three students from a class they taught in the academic year of the deadline. Professors will forward the papers and their own rank orderings and brief evaluations of the papers to the CBLS Director. The CBLS director and one member of the Life Sciences Committee will evaluate all nominees and select a winner. The team with the winning paper receives $300, and their paper is published on the CBLS Web site. Last year, the winning paper was from Professor Andreas Hauskrecht's G400 course.
In addition, undergraduates in X418 and X419 compete for presentation awards. The last two semesters have had winning undergraduate teams! Thanks to our generous corporate sponsors, winning teams often receive financial awards.
