Seven undergraduate students from area institutions showcased biomedical research studies at a poster competition in Oklahoma City on Friday. The students worked with OSU-CHS faculty and graduate researchers as part of a statewide summer program that encourages undergraduate research.
The students, who are from Tulsa Community College and Northeastern State University, designed their own study. They conducted experiments and presented findings to share their results and learn more about the research process.
The Oklahoma IDEA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE), funded by the National Institutes of Health and Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, partner with research universities to offer the program. The undergraduate students spent two months at OSU-CHS working with faculty researchers, including Franklin Champlain, Ph.D., Kathleen Curtis, Ph.D., Randall Davis, Ph.D., Rashmi Kaul, Ph.D., Gerwald Köhler, Ph.D., Al Rouch, Ph.D., and David Wallace, Ph.D.
