Funded by a series of grants from the National Science Foundation, the Freshman Research in Plants (FRIPS) Program at the University of Missouri allows first-year/first-time undergraduate students an opportunity to get a first-hand look at the exciting plant research taking place at MU. Not only do these students have the chance to experience cutting-edge plant biology research, they are also able to learn from esteemed Interdisciplinary Plant Group faculty.
Genetic diversity is crucial for the Vancouver Island marmot to survive threats such as disease outbreaks or adapt to climate change. A recent research paper led by Vancouver Island University alum Kimberley Barrett is giving conservationists a better understanding of the genetic diversity of the Vancouver Island marmot.
Teagan Kuzniar spends her time in the Environmental Microbiology laboratory at WVU where she works on her own independent research project that she developed in the summer of 2021 as part of the WVU Summer Undergraduate Research Experience program. The project utilizes quantitative stable isotope probing to explore microbial responses from wetlands to climate warming.
Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine at the University of Washington
Years ago, a postdoc in the Ruohola-Baker Lab wrote a paper describing a biological mechanism in fruit flies that protects stem cells from apoptosis – in other words, that prevents cell death. The author suggested a systematic drug screen for molecules that might subvert this protective mechanism and induce cell death. Such a drug would be a powerful tool in the fight against cancer.

University of Wisconsin La Crosse
University of Wisconsin - La Crosse is being nationally recognized for its undergraduate research opportunities. UWL is one of three schools earning the 2021 Campus-Wide Award for Undergraduate Research Accomplishments (AURA). The distinction comes from the Council on Undergraduate Research, which has given out the AURA award for the last seven years. Campuses that receive the award demonstrate depth in undergraduate research initiatives, and display continual innovation.
Mercer Goldwater Scholars
Mercer University’s School of Engineering earlier today continued a run of unprecedented success with the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship. For the third consecutive year, three students were announced as recipients of the nation’s most prestigious scholarship for undergraduates in science, mathematics and engineering. Mercer leads all U.S. institutions with a total of nine engineering majors selected as Goldwater Scholars since 2019.
John Barthell
The short story is that UCO’s Provost John Barthell, Ph.D., has had the honor of having a species of bee named in his honor, the orchid bee Eufriesea barthelli. And while the obvious connection is Barthell’s extensive work in bee research worldwide, the story of how a new bee species like E. barthelli comes to be is more like a scientific mystery novel.
Iona College
Sunghee Lee, Ph.D., Iona College Board of Trustees endowed chemistry professor, established the scientific research group Project Symphony to enhance the fundamental understanding of cell membranes and help engineer new bio-inspired devices. For nearly two decades, various Iona STEM majors have worked side-by-side with Lee to perform groundbreaking research, setting students well on their way to both successful careers and more advanced degrees.
