Professor Elizabeth Austin Minor and Assistant Professor Katie Schreiner learn more about the research Gage Sachs has done this summer.
Twenty-four Biochemistry and Chemistry Department students exhibited their research and let the world know what they discovered in August 2015. They summarized their summer research projects and presented posters for the public to view.
At the event, the University of Minnesota Duluth’s (UMD) Biochemistry and Chemistry Department Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) showcased student research projects at the 2015 SURP poster fair in the UMD Swenson Science Building Atrium on August 6, 2015. Each project highlighted the student’s involvement in campus undergraduate research.
Over a span of ten weeks, the SURP program provides a rare opportunity for undergraduates to experience the research side of academia, normally reserved for faculty, graduate students, doctoral, and post-doc students. The undergraduates are supervised by faculty members in the chemistry and biochemistry fields. Students are compensated for their research through support from the Swenson Family Foundation, faculty research grants, and the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
Venkatram R Mereddy, associate professor, in the Departments of Pharmacy and Chemistry and Biochemistry, was the faculty advisor for the event.
