Congratulations to the 15 undergraduate science majors that presented their original research at the Ashland University College of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (URCA) Symposium.  Students gave both oral and poster presentations to large crowds in the 2nd annual College-wide symposium, which is directed by Biology professor Andrew Greene.

Images below are from some of our student poster presentations  Check back soon to read what some of these students will be doing after they graduate this May:

Tiffany Weaver (chemistry) explains her polymer research performed with Dr. Perry Corbin.

Rachel Day (biology) presents a molecular technique being developed with Drs. Patty Saunders and Andrew Greene to study freshwater plankton.

Daphne Guinn (toxicology) and Jennifer Miller (chemistry) present their research with Dr. Jeff Weidenhamer on toxic cadmium levels in consumer products.

Wendy Dria (biology) discusses her work on circadian rhythms in fungi with Dr. Andy Trimble.  This research was mentored by Dr. Andrew Greene.

Rachael Glover (biology) presented her work with Dr. Patty Saunders on horizontal migration in freshwater plankton.
