Summer research at Ashland University

With summer upon us students and faculty are busy making progress on a variety of research programs in the Ashland science departments.  Thirteen students are conducting research in the Kettering Science Building this summer, with most living on campus.  In addition to performing research, students have the opportunity to attend workshops on developing careers in science and giving scientific presentations.  Students will be giving their own presentations on their work towards the end of the summer.  The students in our summer research program are supported by the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Merck Foundation and the Choose Ohio First Scholarship program.

This past Friday we had our first guest research seminar of the summer, hosting Dr. Laura Sirot from the College of Wooster to talk about her work on reproduction in mosquitos, and how this information could be used to reduce the population sizes of these disease-carrying insects.
