Students present research at University symposium

Senior Charlie Davis presenting research at our College symposium

Five students from the Department of Biology/Toxicology recently presented results from their independent research projects at the 3rd annual Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Symposium.  This event is put on each year by the College of Arts and Sciences at Ashland University to give students from the College's 17 departments the opportunity to present their independent scholarship to the University community.  The Symposium is chaired by our very own Dr. Andrew Greene.

This year's presenters included:

  • Junior Lindsey Knapp researching brain development with Dr. Steve Fenster
  • Senior Charlie Davis, also working with Steve Fenster
  • Sophomore Cassie Nix examining the toxicity of Jimsonweed with Dr. Andy Trimble
  • Junior Zach Haley studying gene regulation in a small heat shock protein with Dr. Mason Posner
  • Junior Evan Dort researching the population genetics of invasive grasses with Dr. Soren Brauner
