Undergraduate students from several disciplines in the sciences presented research posters for the End-of-Summer Student Research Presentation, sponsored by the Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) Program. The presentation ran from 3:00-5:00 PM on Friday, 23 August 2013, on the first floor of the Oxendine Science Building.
Fourteen posters were in the line up, including posters given by Summer-Only RISE Students and RISE Fellows. Research topics were quite variable, with focuses ranging from neurobiology, chemistry, physics, to ecology. Some research was conducted out of state. A complete list (PDF file) of poster titles and authors can by obtained by clicking (Word) or (PDF).
Goals of the RISE program are to prepare UNCP students for research in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, and to enhance the environment for scientific research at UNCP.
The RISE program is funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health. Students who are interested in joining the RISE program should contact Dr. Robert Poage (Program Director) or Prof. Sailaja Vallabha (Co-Program Director).
