2011 Poster Presentation/Neuroscience Students Recognized
Senior students in the Neuroscience 490 course were given the
opportunity to display their senior project posters in the 2011 Poster
Presentation/Neuroscience Student Recognition Dessert on April 8,2011. In
addition to the poster displays and discussions, graduating seniors were given a
booklet featuring each graduate's research abstract and career plans following
their May 7 graduation from the CVM/WSU Neuroscience Program.
Four individual students were given Neuroscience scholarships, including
Rachel Wanty, who was awarded the Peter A. Zornes Memorial
Neuroscience Scholarship, and Erik Larson, Jonathan
Stewart, and Stephenie Le'Von McCray, who were each
given a Neuroscience Endowed Scholarship for the 2011-2012 academic year.
