The Gonzaga University Science Research Program (GSRP) will host its Third Annual Poster Session from 5-6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 1, on the first floor of Hughes Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
The posters will display the researchers’ findings — including summaries and objectives, results, and the significance of the research. Students will describe and discuss their work, and many of the pieces will remain on display for several weeks.
The GSRP receives a large percentage of its funding from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, which strengthens the research efforts for both students and faculty. The program enables faculty to develop external grants, while the students receive priceless experience.
This poster session, focused on biology and chemistry, will be an opportunity for research students to share their findings with the local community. Over the summer, 28 students and 12 faculty members participated in research at Gonzaga, and about half of the students and two-thirds of the faculty received aid from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust for their research.
Approximately 21 students and four professors will present these findings on Oct. 20-21 at the University of Portland during the 15th Regional Conference on Undergraduate Research of the Murdock College Science Research Program.
