Students showcase research at annual Loyola Biology Symposium

Loyola press release - March 19, 2010

Students from Loyola's Department of Biological Sciences will present research ranging from molecular processes to how ecosystems function at the 20th Annual Biological Sciences Undergraduate Symposium.

The symposium takes place Friday, March 26 from 2-5 p.m. in Miller Hall, Room 114, on Loyola's main campus. A reception will immediately follow the symposium.

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, including preparing videos and PowerPoint presentations to communicate their research to faculty and peers, and completing a written version of their research and results.
