Fortin Foundation Bass Connections Showcase

The Fortin Foundation Bass Connections Showcase is an annual event for members of our year-long project teams to share their research with the community. This Virtual Showcase, which was first launched in April 2019 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, is meant to complement our in-person showcase and highlight the hard work of our project teams through student-authored team profiles, digital presentations, research posters and additional project outputs.

We invite you to check out this digital exhibit to learn more about our research teams. Please use the filters to browse teams by academic year (beginning with 2019-2020), theme, focus area and type of output.
