Five undergraduate researchers represented FAU at the Life Sciences South Florida Symposium on March 24th at Florida International University. Life Sciences South Florida draws on inspiration from successful clusters such as Silicon Valley in California and the Research Triangle in North Carolina to fuel the momentum of Florida’s fast-growing life sciences industry. It creates a link between world-class colleges and universities, renowned institutes and industry partners to drive research and accelerate commercialization.
This year, FAU undergraduates presented their research through oral and poster presentations on a variety of engineering and science topics. Biology undergraduate and Honors Thesis Program student Ronithe Senatus, who works under the supervision of Dr. Robert Stackman, participated in the event this year. Ronithe also represented FAU by presenting a poster at the at the National Council for Undergraduate Research Meeting this April in Oklahoma.
