Biology and chemistry students to report research findings

Nine EMU biology and chemistry majors will present findings from their research projects at the final Suter Science Seminar of the school year, 4 p.m. Friday, Apr. 17, in room 104 of the Suter Science Center.

The projects to be discussed are: “electrophysiology of lutamate receptors,” Dr. Greta Ann Herin, mentor; “chemoattractants of cucumber beetles,” Dr. Matthew Siderhurst, mentor; and “neonatal exposure to exogenous estrogens alter mouse reproductive development and function,” Dr. Roman Miller, mentor.

For most of the participating students, these research presentations culminate a year of research effort in working alongside EMU professors.

Admission to the seminar is free. Refreshments will be served 15 minutes prior to the program.
