WSU undergraduate researchers are making an impact!
Luis Cortez was invited to Spain to present his undergraduate research at an international scientific conference. In his mentor’s laboratory, the future physician investigates a family of enzymes that exists in cells and damages viruses that have invaded the cells.
Collin Warwick, Marleny Garcia, and Carlie Knox won awards for presentations on their undergraduate research in neuroscience and biology at a conference for minority students.
These four Cougars were among the more than 250 WSU students from all campuses who presented their research in Pullman at the annual Showcase for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (SURCA 2016).
Nearly a quarter of WSU undergraduates report that they do knowledge-building research or creative activities with a mentor before they graduate. This hands-on experience adds depth and value to their already transformative education at WSU.
Every undergraduate, regardless of financial circumstances, should have the opportunity to carry out a research project and share the unique findings.
Please support awards and opportunities for these students with your gift to the Undergraduate Research Development Fund. Every WSU student is eligible to be a researcher. Please read more at https://UndergraduateResearch.wsu.edu.
