About the Symposium

The 2017 MCubed Symposium was a dynamic showcase of research and scholarship at the University of Michigan, from snake robots and the human microbiome to big data and public art. More than 250 interdisciplinary faculty and student teams, or “cubes,” presented their work through storytelling, demonstrations, and posters.
