Cooperative Agricultural Research Center Hosts Summer Research Symposium

  • CAHS Summer Research Symposium

This summer, Prairie View A&M University’s Cooperative Agricultural Research Center (CARC), under the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences, hired 44 students from PVAMU, Texas A&M University, University of Houston, University of Texas-San Antonio and Texas Tech University. They assisted researchers with laboratory exercises and research objectives aimed at discovery and innovation for our stakeholders across the state of Texas and beyond.

“Every year, for the past more than ten years, CARC has hired student learners in diverse areas of study to engage them in hypothesis-driven scientific and agriculturally related research activities,” said Associate Director of Research Dr. Ali Fares. “Over the course of this past summer semester, students developed smart apps, conducted high-end research, and worked with plants and animals.”

The students presented their findings at a Summer Research Symposium on August 6. To learn more about the symposium, click here.
