Undergraduate Research Experience in Biology

John Cavitt, Zoology
Ron Meyers, Zoology
Karen Nakaoka, Microbiology

This program provided support for seven students to conduct full-time independent research collaboratively with a faculty member from one of the life sciences departments within the College of Science. In addition to conducting research, each student was required to attend a weekly journal-club meeting and a weekly workshop. At the conclusion of the summer program students constructed research posters and displayed their results at two poster sessions on campus. Three students made oral presentations of their research at the annual meeting of the Utah Ornithological Society. All seven students presented their research at the 17th National Conference on Undergraduate Research in Salt Lake City.
