2019 International Scholar Research Exposition Summaries

The Fourteenth Annual International Scholar Research Exposition will be on display on the first and second floor of Bricker Hall, near the Office of the Vice President of Research. Current international J-1 visiting scholars to The Ohio State University were invited to submit research summaries and from those, 34 finalists were asked to create research posters for display. The posters will be on display in Bricker Hall during November and December 2019.
