Three Xavier University Biology department students won awards in the capstone poster presentation in University of Cincinnati’s SURF 2010 program. Krysten Knecht tied for 2nd place, Blake Frey tied for 3rd place with Mark Costello receiving an Honorable Mention. The SURF program (Summer Undergrad Research Fellowship) is a 10 week, hands on experience under the supervision of a principal investigator in one of several state-of–the-art funded biomedical research laboratories ranging from molecular biology to animal physiology and behavior and gives students a first hand opportunity to experience what a career in biomedical research will be like.
