Students present at Western Pennsylvania Undergraduate Biology Research Symposium
Waynesburg University hosted the 30th Annual Western Pennsylvania Undergraduate Biology Symposium on April 18, 2009. Dr. Bruce Alberts was the Keynote Speaker for the event as a part of our Crosby Lecture Series.
Waynesburg University Biology students presented posters of their research at the 29th Annual Western Pennsylvania Undergraduate Biology Research Symposium on April 12, 2008 at Washington and Jefferson College. Undergraduate biology students from across the region presented their independent research as either a talk or a poster presentation.
Waynesburg University students' poster presentations are part of the requirements of the Bio 499 "Senior Research Projects" course. Students in this course are required to propose and carry out a hands-on independent research project based on their interests. Each student is paired with a faculty mentor, whose background most closely matches the area of proposed research. Upon completion, students are required to present their research.
