The Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC) is a conference for undergraduate students at the University of British Columbia (UBC) to showcase their research in front of their fellow UBC students, family, and friends. Researchers may choose one of three formats to showcase their research: oral presentation, poster, or virtual presentation. Presentations are categorized into four multidisciplinary themes: Health and Wellness; Individual, Community and Society; Sustainability and Conservation; and Innovation and Technology. Presentations were evaluated by UBC graduate students and faculty to provide students with feedback on their projects and presentation skills.

MURC 2022 was the 19th iteration of the conference and the first ever hybrid (both in-person and virtual) undergraduate research conference held at UBC. The theme for MURC 2022 was Inspire Change. This theme seeks to approach research in a manner that inspires new generations to see that change as an agent of positivity and growth. The in-person components of the conference were held at the UBC Vancouver campus, with poster sessions in the Marine Drive Ballroom and oral presentations in the various lecture rooms in the West Mall Swing Space Building. Virtual presentations were held using the Zoom Meetings videoconferencing software.
