Biology seniors present at 25th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium

Biology students present at 25th Undergraduate Research Symposium

Students from Loyola's Department of Biological Sciences will present research ranging from molecular processes to how ecosystems function at the 25th Annual Biological Sciences Undergraduate Symposium.

The symposium takes place Friday, March 13, 2015, from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., in Nunemaker Auditorium, on the 3rd floor of Monroe Hall on Loyola's main campus. A crawfish social will immediately follow the symposium in the Peace Quad.

Designed for senior biology majors who have chosen to receive honors credit by completing undergraduate research in biological science, the symposium gives participants the opportunity to present their research, some of which has taken several years to complete.

Each student has a faculty adviser and must complete several requirements in order to participate, some of which included preparing videos and PowerPoint presentations to communicate their research to faculty and peers, and completing a written version of their research and results.
