The Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) Program's annual End-of-Summer Student Research Presentations featured the work of more than 20 undergraduates (mostly biology and chemistry majors). The presenters conducted research this summer locally or out of state. Host institutions included Yale University, Miami University, the University of Maryland, and the University of California at Riverside. The RISE Program and other agencies like the National Science Foundation funded many of the projects.  The RISE Program prepares students for careers in biomedical and behavioral sciences and enhances undergraduate research in the sciences at UNCP.  Pictured above:  Dr. Rachel Smith with RISE presenters.
