Undergraduate Students

This page is dedicated to all of the hardworking undergraduate students that we have the pleasure of mentoring in our research program.  Overall, our outstanding students are awarded opportunities that allow them to showcase their work and reflect their involvement in our lab (e.g. co-authorships on publications, Excellence in Research Program, UROP Symposium, Western Evolutionary Biology Meeting, Science Honor Society Annual Student Conference, etc.).

May 2014

Congratulations to Angelica Stamegna, Samantha Anne Quesada, Huy Nguyen, and Brandon Kuey for being awarded Excellence in Research for 2014. All four of them each presented both an oral and poster presentation as well as published a scientific paper in the Journal of Undergraduate Research 2014.  In addition, Ms. Angelica Stamegna was also chosen by the Excellence Committee to compete in a finalist judging session, where she was ultimately earned the Robert Ernst Award for Excellence in Research in the Biological Sciences. For her high achievement, Ms. Stamegna was also awarded the ADRIANA Award, given annually to the best excellence in research project that has utilized Drosophila as a model organism. The award consists of a cash prize of $500 and a plaque. The details for each student project are listed below:
