The Department of Biological Sciences will host its 23rd Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on Friday, April 5, 2013 from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the Loyola University New Orleans main campus in Nunemaker Hall Auditorium, on the 3rd Floor of Monroe Hall. A crawfish social will immediately follow the symposium in Dixon Court at the St. Charles Avenue entrance of the Communications/Music Complex.
The symposium is designed for seniors who have chosen to complete undergraduate research to receive honors credit by completing research in Biological Sciences. Each student has a faculty adviser and must complete several requirements in order to participate. Participating students prepared videos and Powerpoint presentations to communicate their research to their student and faculty peers. In addition to participating in the symposium, students must complete a written version of their research and results. The symposium will afford biology seniors an opportunity to present their research, some of which has taken students several years to complete. The presentations are as diverse as biology is as a field – ranging from cellular and molecular processes to how ecosystems function.
Loyola University New Orleans is a Jesuit-Catholic institution with a total student enrollment of 4,724 including 800 law students.
