Students Put Research on Display for Annual Symposium

Biology URS

The Biology Department hosted its annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on October 26. The event showcased students at PVAMU while encouraging other students to conduct research and share knowledge.

“When students engage in research as an undergraduate, it deepens their learning. It also makes them much more competitive when applying to professional and graduate schools,” said Dr. Yolander Youngblood, assistant professor of biology and organizer of this year’s event. “That being said, we encouraged all of our participants to submit their abstracts and papers for publication in PVAMU’s undergraduate research journal PURSUE.”

Ann Obi, Chonique Long, and Asja Jackson placed first, second, and third in the symposium.
