Students Present Research Projects During the Summer Research Poster Session

Approximately 100 students from Chicago Medical School, College of Pharmacy and Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine presented research projects to the university community during the Summer Research Poster Session held Oct. 17.

Students developed their project proposals under the guidance of faculty mentors and spent eight weeks during the summer conducting research. The students then prepared scientific posters that documented their results. Sponsored by the Office of the Executive Vice President for Research, the poster session provided students the opportunity to share their findings with other students, faculty and staff.
