Eight students recently were announced as winners of Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne’s 19th annual Student Research and Creative Endeavor Symposium.
More than 100 undergraduate and graduate students — a record for the event — presented research in posters that were judged by faculty teams. Judging criteria included poster content, student presentation and poster appearance.
“Not only did we have more student presenters this year, we also had more faculty mentors and judges to work with the students,” said Cheryl Truesdell, dean of IPFW’s Helmke Library.
Prizes ranged from $250 for first place to $150 for third place. The top graduate student prize went to Kumud Joshi for her paper titled: The Mechanism of Rag5 Mediated Resistance to Soybean Aphids. The top undergraduate prize went to Glady Calderon and Elisa Hernandez for their paper titled: Social Network Behaviors, Personality and Romantic Relationships.
