Research Week

Held in October of each year, UNLV Research Week celebrates the research, scholarly, and creative activities of our faculty and students through events that educate, engage, and inspire attendees. Research Week events have included lab tours, technology expos, research fairs, poster sessions, lectures, open houses, workshops on UNLV’s research services, and more.

Departments, colleges, and labs across campus are invited to host events that highlight their contributions to UNLV’s research, scholarly, and creative endeavors. Not sure where to begin with putting a Research Week event together? Take a look at the events checklist on the right to get started. Please reach out to Raegen Pietrucha at if you have any questions.

Events for this year’s Research Week are listed below. To request that your event be added to UNLV’s Research Week webpage, please submit a brief description of it (along with a UNLV Event Calendar link, if available) to Raegen Pietrucha at Events will be reviewed by the Research Week Planning Committee for inclusion on this webpage.
