The Office of Research and Economic Development, Office of Graduate Studies and the Office of Undergraduate Research sponsored four poster sessions for students to present their work April 11-12.
As part of this event, students had the option to compete in a poster competition. Top graduate presenters earned $400 travel grants and awards to support their research work. Top undergraduate presenters were supported by their respective colleges and provided a $250 financial award. Nearly 100 graduate students presented their work as did more than 200 undergraduates. Additionally, five undergraduate students were recognized by the University Honors Program for their research.
More than 70 faculty, postdocs and graduate students helped judge the posters, and there were more than 25 individuals who volunteered at the event.
Software engineering student Simon Schoenbeck received two awards for his project, "Data Structures for Representing and Encoding Gene Expression." He was named a College of Engineering Undergraduate Student Winner, and received the Award for Best Use of Interdisciplinary Approaches or Methodology from the University Honors Program.
Congratulations to Simon Schoenbeck on his outstanding research work!
