Celebration of Student Research
Student Research at National Conferences
This year NCUR (National Council on Undergraduate Research) was held at the University of Montana at Missoula, Montana, from April 15 to April 17. Eighteen students from the College of Arts and Sciences attended. Heather Grome representing the Biology Department, presented a poster covering her research. Altogether over 2,000 students from across the country have the opportunity at the conference to present the results of their undergraduate research. All Biology and Natural Sciences majors are required to do senior research, and many present it at Xavier's Celebration of Student Research as well.
